ABSTRACT
We performed the collection management, database creation and an update to the APG III (2009) system for the specimens from the herbarium of the Federico Villarreal National University. We present 419 copies distributed in 22 orders, 53 families, 192 genera and 262 species, of which 10 species are endemic to Peru and are from the department of Lima. The family Asteraceae represents 25% of the species, herbs predominate with a 48%, 40 species have medicinal properties and most species were collected between 0-500 m.
