    Hopkins, H.C.F., Pillon, Y., Stacy, E.A. et al. 2015. Jaffrea, a new genus of Rhamnaceae endemic to New Caledonia, with notes on Alphitonia and Emmenosperma. Kew Bulletin 70: 42. DOI https://doi.org/10.1007/s12225-015-9593-6

    New Caledonia.
    In or at the margins of dense evergreen forest, along streams, and in maquis, from 100 – 1250 m, on ultramafic substrates.
    The number of collections and their wide distribution in New Caledonia in various habitat types suggest a preliminary conservation status of Least Concern (LC), according to the criteria of the IUCN (2001).


    Native to:

    New Caledonia
