Known from three localities in Viet Nam, one in the north and two in the south; confirmation of some localities is needed, but it is possibly more common than currently thought. Although it grows to a height of 20 m, it is easily overlooked in the densely forested and mountainous area where it occurs. The assessment is based on a more than 30% reduction due to deforestation.
