The Xyridaceae family in Peru are represented by 11 species in the genus Xyris (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), all herbs. Here we recognize one endemic taxon. This endemic taxon is found in grasslands of the Paramo region, at 3300 m elevation. It has not yet been reported from one of Peru's protected areas.
