Scientific Name: Jensenobotrya lossowiana A.G.J. Herre

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Vulnerable D2 ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Annotations:
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Loots, S.
Reviewer(s): Victor, J.E. & Hilton-Taylor, C. (Southern African Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
Jensenobotrya lossowiana is assessed as Vulnerable. The RAMAS® Red List version 2.0 software package was used to make this assessment.

This species is known from 4–5 subpopulations, with extent of occurrence < 500 km² and area occupied by the species < 2 km². Population size is thought to be < 1,000 but currently it is stable. The main threat to the species is collecting as this plant has a very restricted range. The area it occurs in was previously very isolated, however, it has recently opened up to tourism. Increased use of the area is a potential threat to the species.
