Data Deficient (DD) , assessed in 07/04/2017

Phelline macrophylla is an endemic shrub/tree of New Caledonia, which under current knowledge, is known from Grande Terre, Ile des Pins, Lifou and Maré. It would be found in humid forest on various substrates at low to mid altitude. This taxon is insufficiently known. Experts think there may be several entities under the currently delimited taxa. P. macrophylla is therefore assessed as Data Deficient (DD) for taxonomic and provenance reasons.
