Campynemanthe parva is an endemic herb of New Caledonia, which under current taxonomic delimitation, is distributed throughout Grande Terre. It would occur in humid forest at mid to high altitude (300-1,100 m asl). This taxon is insufficiently collected and not well known. Campynemanthe parva is therefore assessed as Data Deficient (DD) for provenance and taxonomic reasons.
