Phyllanthus rufuschaneyi is a small tree, endemic to Sabah. The estimated area of occupancy (AOO) and extent of occurrence (EOO) are both 8 km2. Although the AOO may be larger with greater collection effort it is unlikely to exceed the boundaries of a threatened category. It is not known from any protected areas but one of its subpopulation is rather close to Hampuan Forest Reserve. The species experiences ongoing decline due to increased frequency of forest fire in its habitat. This species is assessed as Endangered. Phyllanthus rufuschaneyi is endemic to Sabah, Malaysia. It is only known from Ranau.
