Pittosporum peridoticola is a rare species of shrub recorded only from Mount Kinabalu and Mount Tumbuyukon. To date, the estimated area occupancy (AOO) and extent of occurrences (EOO) are both 8 km2 respectively. The species is known from two locations. This species is recorded to occur in ligneous scrub on extreme ultramafic soil in montane forest, therefore the most plausible threats that could affect the population would be climate change and landslides. If these were to occur, they could drive the species towards Critically Endangered or Extinct in the near future. Hence, it is assessed as Vulnerable. Pittosporum peridoticola is endemic to Sabah, Malaysia. It is only known from Mount Kinabalu and Mount Tembuyuken.
