Resumen

The Polemoniaceae are represented in Peru by five genera and 24 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), between herbs, shrubs and vines. Here we recognize nine endemic taxa in four genera. One genus, Huthia, is endemic to Peru. Cantua is the genus with the largest number of endemic species, and it requires a modern taxonomic evaluation. Endemic species in this family are found mainly in Mesoandean and Desert Shrubland regions, from 1900 m to 3600 m elevation. Apparently, only one species has been recorded in the Peruvian System of Protected Natural Areas.
