Peperomia petraea C. DC.

Rock-dwelling Peperomia (Peperomia petraea)

The Rock-dwelling Peperomia is known only by the type material that was collected in the 19th century along the Río Huambi near the town of Puembo, a rural parish in the Metropolitan District of Quito, the capital city of Ecuador.

The area has lost almost all of its native vegetation and this species very likely is extinct.
