Sterculia khasiana Debb.

Khasi Sterkulia (Sterculia khasiana)

This tree species was restricted to the subtropical forests growing on the Khasi Hills in Meghalaya, India.

The species is known from three collections, all made in the 19th century, with the last one dating to 1877; since then the tree could not be relocated and thus is now considered most likely extinct.
