The Flacourtiaceae are represented in Peru by 19 genera and 65 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mainly shrubs and trees. Here we recognize three endemic species in two genera, which are found in the Very Humid Montane Forests region, between 2300 and 3600 m elevation. One endemic Flacourtiaceae species has been registered within Peru's protected areas system.
