Ophiorrhiza rupestris


Wallis & Futuna: Alofi, Futuna

local names: –


Within the Polynesian region this species appears to be restricted to Alofi and Futuna, Wallis & Futuna, but it is otherwise known to be quite widespread on the Solomon Islands.

Since the plant is obviously restricted to beach habitats, it may be an arboriginal introduction. [1]
