Phylica schlechteri Pillans

Orangekloof Hardleaf (Phylica schlechteri)

Thia species was restricted to a very small area along the southwestern coast of the Western Cape Province of South Africa, where it was found growing in so-called sandstone fynbos.

The species has not been found since over 100 years and is very probably extinct. [1]
