The Simaroubaceae are represented in Peru by five genera and 15 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993), all trees and shrubs. Here we recognize one endemic species in the genus Picramnia. This endemic species is found in the Humid Lowland Amazonian Forests region, to 130 m elevation. It has not been recorded within Peru's protected areas system.
