The Myrsinaceae are represented in Peru by nine genera and 92 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mostly shrubs and trees. Here we recognize 28 endemic species in five genera. Endemic species are found mainly in Humid Lowland Amazonian Forests and Very Humid Montane Forests regions between 100 and 3400 m elevation. Ten endemic species of Myrsinaceae have been registered to date within Peru's protected areas system.
