Xysmalobium baurii N. E. Br.

Baur’s Xysmalobium (Xysmalobium baurii)

Baur’s Xysmalobium was described in 1907, it is known from a single collection that was made in 1890 where today is the city of Bizana in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. 

The former habitat of the species is now transformed for subsistence agriculture or is severely overgrazed or otherwise destroyed, it was never relocated since its description and is therefore considered extinct.
