We document 12 gatherings above. The associated locality data allows us to assess the species under criterion B of the IUCN Red List system. The EOO based on these gatherings is 1470 km2, which is below the threshold of 5000 km2 for Endangered (EN) status. Using the ProtectPlanet layer in GeoCAT (Bachman et al. 2011) we estimate that c. 25% of the EOO falls within the contiguous protected areas, the Madidi National Park and the Ulla Ulla National Fauna Reserve. Madidi National Park experiences no significant net change in forest cover (Forrest et al. 2008) although Forrest et al. do suggest that local changes may be greater near roads, which is where many of the gatherings that we document were made. Whilst we could not find any reports on the Ulla Ulla National Fauna Reserve, its contiguity to Madidi National Park leads us to assume that it is subject to similar rates of deforestation. We used the Global Forest Watch (2014) interactive map to survey deforestation between 2001 and 2015 in the c. 75% of the EOO which occurs outside of protected areas and this suggests that there has been no deforestation. No active threats were identified and so given the restricted range of this species and the fact that c. 75% of the EOO occurs outside of protected areas we reclassify this species as Vulnerable (VU).
Freziera alata is endemic to Bolivia and the Department of La Paz.
It has been documented in cloud forest, on forested roadsides and rocky slopes between 2800 – 3100 m elevation. This species is relatively common close to Chuspipata on the trail called ‘La Mina’, also in some parts on rocky slopes of the ‘Carretera de la Muerte’. On rocky slopes the plants are smaller (2 – 3 m) and apparently flower at a smaller stature compared to plants growing in forest (pers. obs. D. Santamaría-Aguilar, Dec. 2016).

Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescences axillary, solitary or fasciculate, bearing 1 – 4 flowers; pedicel 3 – 8 mm, terete to slightly flattened, usually erect or deflexed, glabrous; bracts at pedicel base persistent, 10 – 20 × 2.5 – 6 mm, lanceolate to narrowly triangular, conspicuously keeled, glabrous on both surfaces, margin entire or with a small black caducous seta, slightly revolute, especially at apex, apex acute, conical, with a black seta at its apex; bracteoles at pedicel apex persistent, 2, opposite or subopposite, unequal, 6 – 12 × 5 – 8 mm, broadly ovate, usually one bracteole conspicuously keeled whilst the other not, glabrous, margin entire, not ciliate; keeled bracteole with a black seta, apex acute; non-keeled bracteole without a black seta, apex obtuse
The epithet, alata, is derived from the Latin adjective, alatus, which means ‘winged’. The epithet was proposed for this taxon by Weitzmann (1987a), presumably to account for the winged leaf-bearing branches. Freziera alata corresponds to taxon ‘F. sp. nov. # 1’ in the Guía de Árboles de Bolivia (Arroyo Padilla 1993). The dimensions of the petiole given here are subjective due to the long-decurrent leaf base which makes it difficult to distinguish between the start of the leaf and the end of the petiole. Freziera alata can be distinguished from other Freziera species by the combination of conspicuously flattened and narrowly winged glabrous leaf-bearing branches and laminae that have glabrous or finely strigose abaxial surfaces with prominent and raised midveins, margins with > 90 teeth on each side, and inflorescences subtended by a long keeled bract and bearing flowers subtended by unequal bracteoles, one of which is keeled, glabrous sepals, white petals, and >20 stamens or staminodes. Other species of Freziera with conspicuously flattened and winged leaf-bearing branches are F. forerorum A. H. Gentry (Panama), F. uniauriculata (Peru and Bolivia) and F. carinata A. L. Weitzman (Ecuador and Venezuela). Freziera alata can be distinguished from these species based on petiole, leaf base, inflorescence bract, petal and fruit size.
