Two new species, Festuca renvoizei Stančík and F. urubambana Stančík (Poaceae, Loliinae), from the Peruvian Andes are described. Festuca renvoizei (subg. Festuca L. sect. Festuca L.) comes from the páramo (jalca) zone of northern Peru, while F. urubambana (subg. Erosiflorae E. B. Alexeev) grows in humid mountain forests in southern Peru (Cuzco region). Both species are endemic to Peru. Data for evaluation of IUCN conservation status are deficient, but both species seem to be rare and probably vulnerable.
