Cyrtandra campanulata Reinecke

Bell-flowered Cyrtandra (Cyrtandra campanulata)

The Bell-flowered Cyrtandra occurred in the tropical rainforests of the islands of Savai’i and ‘Upolu, Samoa. 

The species had very large, up to 4 cm long hanging, bell-shaped greenish flowers.

The Bell-flowered Cyrtandra was apparently last collected in 1905 and is now most likely extinct. [1]
