Compendium of Freziera (Pentaphylacaceae) of South America including eleven new species and the typification of 22 names

15 March 2019

Abstract

As part of a revision of neotropical Freziera (Pentaphylacaceae) we provide a compendium of the 63 species we recognise for South America including the description, illustration and extinction threat assessment of 11 new species, typification of 22 names and a new combination for Freziera rufescens (Kobuski) D. Santam. & A. K. Monro based on F. canescens forma rufescens. The new species described are Freziera alata A. L. Weitzman ex D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. croatii D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. ecuadoriensis D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. golondrinensis D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. monteagudoi D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. neei D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. peruana D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. risaraldana D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. siraensis D. Santam. & A. K. Monro; F. trollii D. Santam. & A. K. Monro and F. uniauriculata A. L. Weitzman ex D. Santam. & A. K. Monro. Nine species were assessed as Vulnerable to extinction and two species were assessed as Endangered with extinction. We propose lectotypifications for Eurya inaequalifolia Lingelsh., Freziera arbutifolia Planch. & Triana., F. boliviensis Wawra, F. calophylla Triana & Planch., F. candicans Tul., F. canescens Bonpl., F. chrysophylla Bonpl., F. ferruginea Wawra, F. grisebachii Krug & Urb., F. hieronymi Kobuski, F. lanata (Ruiz & Pav.) Tul., F macrophylla Tul., F. microphylla Sandwith, F. monzonensis (Melch.) Kobuski, F. nervosa Bonpl., F. reticulata Bonpl., F. sericea Bonpl., F. spathulifolia (Melch.) Kobuski, F. suberosa Tul., F. tomentosa (Ruiz & Pav.) Tul., F. wawrai Urb. and F. yungasia Tul.
