Although Salea horsfieldii has a very restricted distribution, it is listed as Least Concern as it is locally abundant, it occurs in protected areas, and does not seem to be affected by habitat conversion to plantations.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
- 2010 – Least Concern (LC)
|Range Description:||Salea horsfieldii is endemic to the high altitudes of the Western Ghats (Daniel 2002) including the Nilgiri and Palni Hills. Ramakrishna (2007) provided Kudremukh hills, lying ca. 500 km further north, as one of the localities. But this must be considered dubious because his record was simply based on information from a website and field surveys in Kudremukh hill range (Vasudevan et al. 2006, Ganesh et al. 2007) did not yield any sightings of this species. Likewise, an erroneous Sri Lankan locality “Nuwara Eliya” has also been reported for this Indian endemic species (see Somaweera and Somaweera 2009). This species occurs at elevations between 1,600 and 2,500 m asl.|
