The Theaceae are represented in Peru by four genera and 26 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993), all trees and shrubs. Here we recognize eight endemic species in three genera, including an erroneously described species attributed to the genus Symplocos. Endemic Theaceae species are found in Very Humid Premontane Forests, Very Humid Montane Forests and Humid Lowland Amazonian Forests regions, between 100 and 3000 m elevation. Two endemic species have been recorded in the Peru's protected areas system.
