Paronychia maccartii Correll

Mccart’s Whitlow-Wort (Paronychia maccartii)  

Mccart’s Whitlow-Wort, a member of the Pink family, was endemic to Texas, USA, where it was restricted to a single locality in Webb County.  

The species appears to be known exclusively from the type material, that had been collected in 1962, it was never found again since and is thus considered very likely extinct.
