|Major Threat(s):||The northern site has been searched specifically for this taxon by Stone & Luke, but the species was not refound. This site was impacted by the goldrush of 2000-2006. The Reserve has been logged in the past and has declined in quality; the exotic Maesopsis is coming in and impacting the habitat. This reserve has also been intensely collected by many collectors.|
One of the sites is within Amani Nature Reserve.
