Amyris cubensis (Borhidi & Acuña) Beurton

Cuban Sandalwood (Amyris cubensis)  

This species, which is endemic to the island of Cuba, is considered most likely extinct.  

There appear to exist several herbarium specimens, however, which apparently were collected in an previously unreported locality that is still insufficiently explored, so there is a slight chance that some undiscovered populations still exist.
