This species is globally assessed as Extinct in the Wild and is only found in cultivation. It presumably went extinct because of habitat loss to expanding agriculture.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||According to its previous global Red List assessment (WCMC 1998), this species was endemic to South Kalimantan, Indonesia (Bompard 1988).|
Regionally extinct:Indonesia (Kalimantan)

|Population:||The species was endemic to the wet climate area around Banjarmasin in Kalimantan, Indonesia, however, in 1998 it was classified as Extinct in the Wild (EW) and no evidence has since been found to contradict this; it is now only known from cultivation in Kalimantan (Bompard 1988, WCMC 1998).|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It is only known from cultivation but occurred in tropical forest habitats that are thought to have been converted into agricultural lands (Bompard 1988, WCMC 1998).|
|Use and Trade:||This species is cultivated in Kalimantan (Indonesia) for its edible fruits (USDA, ARS, National Genetic Resources Program 2014). It also belongs to Taxon Group two of Mango Mangifera indica (Kostermans and Bombard 1993) and so it has potential for use as a gene donor for crop improvement, particularly for traits that confer disease resistance (USDA, ARS, National Genetic Resources Program 2014).|
|Major Threat(s):||There are no threats to this species as it no longer occurs in the wild.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species is Extinct in the Wild and so is not subject to any active in situ conservation. There is no evidence of ex situ conservation for this species.|
