Acronema evolutum (C. B. Clarke) H. Wolff

Naga Pimpernel (Acronema evolutum)

The Naga Pimpernel is known only from the type material, that is said to have been collected in 1985 at the Naga Hills in Nagaland, India. 

The species was apparently never recorded since and is thus considered most likely extinct, it is, however, almost always listed under its old synonym Pimpinella evoluta (C. B. Clarke) M. Hiroe. [1]
