Chittagong Croton (Croton chittagongensis)

The Chittagong Croton is, or probably was, a small tree that was found once in 1939 at a place named Myanimukh on a slope of a forested hill in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, a province in eastern Bangladesh.

The species was described in 1983; it has never found since the type collection and might well be extinct.
