Notched Cyrtandra (Cyrtandra crenata)

The Notched Cyrtandra was known to occur in the rainforests of the Waikane-Kahana area in the windward Wai’anae Mountains as well as in the Ko’olau Mountains of O’ahu, Hawaiian Islands.

The species was last recorded in 1934 (or 1947 according to other sources) and is now thought to be extinct. [1]
