Justification:
Ruschianthus falcatus is assessed as Vulnerable. The RAMAS® Red List version 2.0 software package was used to make this assessment.

This species is known from only one population dispersed over five slopes, very close to one another. Extent of occurrence is < 1 km². Population size is thought to be < 500 plants and, since there are no known threats at present, the population is believed to currently be stable. Collecting is the only known potential threat, although the location is relatively inaccessible.
