Eriocaulon minutissimum Ruhland

Dwarf Pipewort (Eriocaulon minutissimum)  

The Dwarf Pipewort, a very dwarf species, that reaches a height of not even one centimeter, was scientifically described in the year 1925.  

This species is known only from the type material, which was collected near the city of Pinar del Río in the same-named Cuban province.  

The type locality seems not to exist any longer, and the Dwarf Pipewort is considered most likely extinct.
