Erythrina schliebenii (Coral tree)

Wikipedia Abstract

Erythrina schliebenii is a species of legume in the Fabaceae family. It is found only in Tanzania. Believed to have gone extinct in 2008 when the only known surviving trees fell victim to commercial logging, a small population of fewer than 50 individual trees was rediscovered in March 2012 during botanical explorations in the south-east of Tanzania.
