The Thymelaeaceae are represented in Peru by two genera and seven species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993), mostly trees and shrubs. Here we recognize three endemic species in the genus Daphnopsis, taxa that are scarcely represented in herbaria. Endemic Thymleaeaceae are found in Very Humid Premontane Forests and Mesoandean regions, between 700 and 2600 m elevation. None of these taxa have been recorded within Peru's protected areas system.
