Lithops fulviceps is assessed as Least Concern. The RAMAS® Red List version 2.0 software package was used to make this assessment.
This species is known from 11–30 subpopulations with extent of occurrence < 13,750 km² and area of occupancy < 22 km². It is strongly suspected that collecting is causing some population decline, but this is thought to be small. Currently considered Least Concern, but the population should be monitored.
