Cryptocarya bitriplinervia is an endemic tree of New Caledonia. It is known only from the type specimen collected in 1967 in the Kalouéhola valley on serpentine soil. This area is potentially impacted by mining activities. It has never been relocated despite prospections. Cryptocarya bitriplinervia is therefore assessed as Data deficient (DD) for provenance reason.
