Justicia psychotrioides Thou. ex Schult

Psychotria-like Justicia (Justicia psychotrioides)

The Psychotria-like Justicia was described in 1822, as far as I’m aware based on a herbarium specimen, the species was endemic to the island of Mauritius, Mascarene Islands.

The species is now considered extinct.
