Drake’s Hernandia (Hernandia drakeana)

Drake’s Hernandia is known from the island of Mo’orea in the Society Islands; it was last recorded in 1981 and is considered extinct.


This may, however, not really be a species but a naturally occurring hybrid between the other two Hernandia spp. that occur on the Society Islands, Hernandia moerenhoutiana Guill. and Hernandia ovigera L..
