Justification: Malaxis seychellarum is endemic to Mahé and Silhouette, where it is restricted to a area of occupancy (AOO) of 10 km2. It is found in fewer than 10 locations and is threatened by ongoing habitat deterioration due to the spread of invasive species. Reduction in humidity due to climate change is a potential future threat. It is therefore listed as Vulnerable.
Threatened by ongoing habitat deterioration caused by invasive species (especially Cinnamomum veurm and Psidium cattleianum). The cloud forest habitat may be threatened by humidity reductions caused by climate change. A number of intrinsic factors, such as limited dispersal, low densities and restricted range, are also potential threats.
