Leobordea adpressa is a widespread species, often found in disturbed areas (Retief and Herman 1997). Although the subspecies leptantha is considered threatened, there is no reason to suspect the same for the typical subspecies, although it may have declined in parts of its range due to loss of habitat (both extent and quality).
