Begonia eiromischa

According to the 2007 IUCN Red List, Begonia eiromischa from Penang is now officaially extinct. Actually, it has been "unofficially" extinct for more than 10 years already as the only stream where it was found was destroyed. If only a collector had salvaged some plants, like Begonia rajah, which was thought to be extinct for many years but existed widely in cultivation.
