Abstract

A gathering of Ixora scheffleri ssp. keniensis (Rubiaceae), once feared to be extinct, is recorded from Ragati Forest, Mount Kenya. The tree is exploited by local communities for charcoal burning. Conservation of the natural habitat is recommended, plus propagation for ex situ conservation in botanical gardens.
