Iliamna remota
.

Iliamna remota Greene (Malvaceae) is a perennial, herbaceous plant which is endangered in Illinois and endemic to Langham Island in the Kankakee River, in Kankakee County. This species was first documented to be on the island in 1872 by Reverend E. J. Hill. The population occurs along the northwest portion of the island, wherein most plants have been noted to exist in abundance along the ridge leading down to the river. In 1966, Langham Island was dedicated as an Illinois Nature Preserve with the primary goal of preserving the Iliamna remota population.
