This species is only known from the type locality: limestone slopes of the Fiherenana valley. This location is difficult to access today, and it hasn’t yet been collected elsewhere. It is likely to have a very restricted range and has a high appeal for the horticultural trade.
It is rated as VU D2 until more precise data is available to assess its exact extent of occurrence and area of occupancy.
