Taxonomy & Nomenclature

Synonym/s: Notanthera heterophylla (Ruiz & Pav.) G.Don


Conservation Status



Considered an extinct taxon endemic to the Juan Fernández Islands by (Humphreys et al., 2019). Plants of the World Online (POWO) considers it extinct from the former, but extant from Chile, so it may have been rediscovered. Alternatively, Humphreys et al. (2019) listed it as endemic to the former in error and it was extant in Chile all along.
