Information regarding this species’ current wild distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats is greatly deficient. Without this information, it is difficult to assess the current population trends of this species. Therefore, this species is listed as DD until such information arises.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species was originally described as growing in Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, in 1868.
Population and Trends
The current status of any wild populations of this species is unknown at this time, and is likely to remain as such without much further research into its distribution, habitat, and ecology.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Information on the habitat preferences or ecology of this species is deficient.
Information as to whether this species is threatened is lacking, and without further research into its habitat preferences and distribution, it may be unreasonable to assign threats to this species.
Due to the deficiency of geographic information associated with this species, as well as of information regarding its habitat preferences, no conservation actions can be recommended at this time.
Research is required in order to verify the existence of wild populations of this species, whether these populations are threatened, and their habitat preferences, in order to accurately classify this species.
