Range DescriptionPereskia marcanoi is endemic to Hispanola, present in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The species was first described from an individual found growing on bare limestone rock in the municipality of Bánica in the Elías Piña province (Areces-Mallea 1992), at elevations of around 500 m asl. Collections of this species made in Haiti in the 1920s are likely extirpated (P. Griffith pers. comm. 2011). However, as this cannot be confirmed without surveying the area, these collections are taken into consideration for this assessment.
