Juglans jamaicensis (West Indian walnut)

Wikipedia Abstract

Juglans jamaicensis (West Indian walnut, nogal, palo de nuez) is a species of walnut in the Juglandaceae family. It is found in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Puerto Rico. It is not, in fact, native to Jamaica, as its name would suggest. In Puerto Rico there are only ten to fourteen trees of this species remaining. It is also rare in Cuba and Hispaniola. This tree has protection under the Endangered Species Act of the United States, where it is listed as an endangered species.
