Scientific Name: Euphorbia berorohae
Species Authority: Rauh & Hofstätter

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Critically Endangered B1ab(iii)+1ab(iii) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Haevermans, T.
Reviewer(s): Rajeriarison, C., Labat, J.N., Lowry, P. & Randrianjohany, E. (Madagascar Plants RLA)
Justification:
This species qualifies for Critically Endangered as it is known from only two collections in the same locality, one in 1933 and the other recently in the 1990s (without previous knowledge of the 1933 specimen). Many botanists have visited this area, but no other specimens have been collected. This species is likely to grow only in the type locality. Its habitat is highly prone to fires and clear cutting. The plant is also potentially appealing to horticulture and succulent plants collectors.
