Scientific Name: Verbesina mameana
Species Authority: Andrè

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2003
Date Assessed: 2003-04-30
Annotations:
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Montúfar, R. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A treelet endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from a single collection recorded before 1885. No data is available for locale, as the label description only mentions southern Ecuador. The lack of new records in the last 114 years may suggest a reduction of the population and perhaps its extinction. However, no effective evaluation of its status can be carried out until the lost holotype is found. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
