Symplocos buxifolioides is a tree, endemic to Sabah. It is only known from a very small population on upper montane of Mount Kinabalu with estimated area of occupancy (AOO) and extent of occurrence (EOO) at only 16 km2. The most plausible threats that could affect the population of this species are climate change and landslide. If these were to occur, they could drive the species towards Critically Endangered or Extinct in the near future. Hence, the species is assessed as Vulnerable. Symplocos buxifolioides is endemic to Sabah, Malaysia. It is only known from upper montane areas of Mount Kinabalu.
