Although both the area of occupancy and extent of occurrence are within the thresholds for Vulnerable, it is uncertain if there has been sufficient decline to justify that category. Several subpopulations have been effected by mining activities and fire (for example in the Paéoua and Boulinda areas) while others have become more fragmented or degraded. Although widespread, this species is less frequent than Falcatifolium taxoides (Least Concern) which is often associated with A. pancheri.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||Endemic to New Caledonia where it is relatively rare but widespread. The majority of subpopulations are in the south.|

|Population:||Most stands occur in the southern massif with a few, more isolated stands in the north in places such as Mount Panie, the Massif du Tchingou, Mount Paeuoa and Boulinda.|
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
|Habitat and Ecology:||A small tree mainly found in the understory of lower and mid montane dense humid forests. It occurs at low densities on both ultramafic and schist substrates.|
|Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:||Yes|
|Major Threat(s):||At Paeoua and Boulinda mining activities and fire threaten areas where this species occurs.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species is known from several protected areas including Montagne des Sources and the Riviere Bleue. In the north it is also known from Mount Panie botanical reserve.|
