Zhumeria majdae is the only species of the genus Zhumeria of Lamiaceae family. This bush species is endemic of Iran (Hormozgan province) and has been distributed on very steep slopes of mountains at 525-1430 meters a.s.l. Based on IUCN guidelines, different criteria were used to evaluate the status of this species as follows: extent of occurrence (EOO), area of occupancy (AOO), size of population, regeneration, and quality of habitat. According to field studies, Zhumeria majdae occupies an area of 0.11 km2. According to an analysis by GeoCAT software, the extent of occurrence was 7977 km2. Based on our results, Zhumeria majdae is defined as a Critically Endangered (CR) species. The monotypic genera contain the species that, if threatened, may disappear forever and their associated genomes will not be found elsewhere in the world. It is highly recommended that appropriate approaches should be taken to prevent the extinction of this species.
