Lipochaeta degeneri Sherff

Degener’s Lipochaeta (Lipochaeta degeneri)

Degener’s Lipochaeta was described in 1933 based on material that was collected near the southwestern point of Moloka’i in the Hawaiian Islands; the last of these collections date from 1928.

This species is almost certainly extinct now. [1]
