Pelagodoxa henryana

Family: Arecaceae

Bloom time: Non-blooming

Native to the Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas Islands, this palm is found in only one valley and has been reduced to about a dozen individuals in the wild. A combination of habitat loss and introduced non-native animal species such as rats, goats and pigs have resulted in its decline.
