Red List Status -Vulnerable (VU) , assessed in 10/05/2016
Pycnandra neocaledonica is an endemic tree up to 10m tall restricted to the very north-eastern corner of Grande Terre: Ignambi, Mandjélia, Vagaya/Amoss.This species occurs in humid forests on volcano-sedimentary substrate at an altitudinal range 500-1,000 m asl. The main impact identified comes from busfires. The EOO and AOO are respectively calculated to be 36 km² and 54 km² and the number of locations is six. Pycnandra neocaledonica is therefore listed as Vulnerable (VU) B1ab(iii,v)+B2ab(iii,v) with a continuing decline of all sub-criteria.
