Latania lontaroides is a species of palm tree endemic to Réunion. Commonly known as the Red Latan, latanier de la Réunion, or latanier rouge, it is used as an ornamental plant. The armored scale insect Hemiberlesia lataniae was first described from this species of palm, and has since spread around the world and become a serious pest of avocado. The species has become endangered due to land being cleared for agriculture and other purposes, but is still grown as an ornamental plant in various parts of the world.
