(Alphonsea kingii)

 
syn. -

 
distribution:

Malaysia: Perak

 
local name: -

 
size: (?)

extinction date: (?)

 
This species is known only from a single collection which was made in the Kinta valley in the Malaysian state of Perak, a region in which in the year 1884 the world's largest tin deposit was discovered.

Because the by far largest part of this region has felt victim to the tin mining, it is very unlikely that this species has survived until today.
