Concealed Grammtis Fern (Grammitis recondita)

Der Concealed Grammtis Fern, described in 1971, is a middle-sized epiphytic fern species that was only ever recorded once in the 19th century near of what today is the town of Archidona in the Napo Province in central Ecuador. [1]

The species was never found again since and is now considered most likely extinct.
