The Convolvulaceae are represented in Peru by 17 genera and 132 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mostly vines and lianas. Here we recognize as endemics nine species and one subspecies in four genera. Endemic taxa are found in Desert Shrubland, Dry Forests and Tropical Costal Desert regions, between 100 and 2000 m elevation. None of the species have been collected to date within Peru's protected area system.
