|Red List Category & Criteria:||Vulnerable D2 ver 3.1|
|Reviewer/s:||Victor, J.E. & Hilton-Taylor, C. (Southern African Plants Red List Authority)|
Lithops werneri is assessed as Vulnerable. The RAMAS® Red List version 2.0 software package was used to make this assessment. This species has a very restricted range: only one population is known with extent of occurrence estimated at 1 km². There was a reduction in population size (possibly of around 50%) around 1950, as several hundred plants were collected. It is not known if the population has recovered since then. Collecting is the main potential threat to the population, along with habitat destruction from tourist activities in the area.
