Peperomia subpetiolata Yunck.

Waikamoi Peperomia (Peperomia subpetiolata)

The Waikamoi Peperomia, named ‘ala ‘ala wai nui in the Hawaiian language, is known from a single population near the Kula Pipeline between the Puohokamoa- and the Waikamoi Streams in eastern Maui, Hawaiian Islands.

The species itself is apparently extinct, however, there apparently still exists a hybrid of this species and the Forest Peperomia (Peperomia hirtipetiola C. DC.) that is kept in cultivation.
