This species is known from only one collection made in the woods of Mount Patuha, Indonesia, as described in Jungh 1838. Information on any further collections of this species from that time is deficient. If any wild populations of this species exist at its known locality now, they may be threatened by volcanic eruption, however further research is needed in order to confirm this claim. Due to a deficiency in information regarding this species’ distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats, this species is listed as DD until new relevant information arises.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species was originally described as growing in the woods of Mount Patuha, Indonesia (Jungh 1838). Information on any further distributions of this species is lacking.
Population and Trends
The current status of this species in the wild is unknown at this time and is likely to remain as such without further research. Therefore, the current trends of this species remain uncertain.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
This species is thought to have occurred in the woods of Mount Patuha.
Subtropical/Tropical Moist Montane Forest
Although this species could exist in the woods covering the Mount Patuha stratovolcano, and could therefore be threatened by volcanic eruption, no details of previous eruptions are known for this area. There don’t appear to be any significant threats affecting this species, and so no threats can be assigned at this time.
The exact locality and information as to whether or not this species exists in the wild are unknown, and so no conservation action can be recommended at this time.
Research is required in order to assess whether this species exists within a wild population, which habitat types it exists within, and whether it is threatened, in order to assign an accurate classification to this species.
