Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: The range of this species should be investigated to determine whether it really is confined to Mann Spring or is widespread in the montane forest. Further information is also required on the size of the population, whether regeneration is occurring, and current and potential threats to the species. Care must be taken to avoid confusion with Isoglossa glandulifera which occurs at lower altitudes and is widespread.
