Syzygium phaeophyllum Merr. & L. M.

Perry Gray-leaved Rose Apple (Syzygium phaeophyllum)  

The Gray-leaved Rose Apple is a 6 m tall tree that appears to be restricted to the island of Taveuni, Fijian Islands.  

The species is known only from two collections, made in the years 1933 and 1934 respectively.  

The Gray-leaved Rose Apple was never found again and thus is very likely already extinct.
