Identification:
This species was thought to have become extinct in the wild, with only a few specimens in gardens in Honolulu. Pritchardia lowreyana has now been rediscovered on the island of Oahu, clinging tenaciously at 515 m elevation to a very steep, north-facing slope about 175 m below the summit of Puu Ohulehule, the pyramid-shaped peak on the ridge running to the east from the main Koolau range and separating Waikane and Kahana Valleys. Beccari and Rock to this species (erroneously referred to as P. macrocarpa) that once grew in the Koolau Mountains behind Honolulu, with green abaxial blade surfaces. A rather striking contrast to the silvery grayish-white abaxial blade surfaces covered with lepidia of all previously known Pritchardia in the Koolau range (P. kahukuensis, P. bakeri and P. martii).

Informations générales:
Found in the Hawaiian Is. One of few species to be found on more than one island (E. Molokai, Oahu).
