Naufraga balearica is a species of flowering plant in the Apiaceae family, and the only species in the genus Naufraga.[1] It is endemic to the Spanish island of Majorca, where it is found only at the base of cliffs at the north of the island.[1] A population was discovered on Corsica in 1981, but it had died out by 1983, and it is not clear whether it arrived naturally.[1] Its natural habitats are Mediterranean-type shrubby vegetation and rocky shores, and is threatened by habitat loss.[2]
