Wikipedia Abstract

Hibiscadelphus woodii (Wood's hau kuahiwi) was a species of flowering plant in the mallow family, Malvaceae, endemic to Kauai, Hawaii. It was a small tree, reaching a height of 2.5–5 m (8.2–16.4 ft).It was discovered in 1991 and described as a new species in 1995. Only four individuals were found at that time; three of those were crushed by a boulder and died between 1995 and 1998, and the last was found dead in 2011.
