Xanthophyllum lineare is a small tree recorded from Sapagaya Forest Reserve, Sabah. To date, the estimated area of occupancy (AOO) and extent of occupancy (EOO) are 12 km2. The species is recorded to occur in stunted forest on ultrabasic bedrock at altitude range between 200–800 m. The most serious plausible threat that could affect the population would be climate change and forest fire. If these were to impact the species it would cause it to become Critically Endangered or Extinct in one generation, given the restricted range of the species. Therefore it is assessed as Vulnerable. Xanthophyllum lineare is endemic to Sabah, Malaysia. It is restricted to Sapagaya Forest Reserve.

Item Type: Dataset

It is found in stunted forest on ultrabasic bedrock with a previous published range of between 200–500m (de Wilde and Duyfjes 2007). However, based on herbarium collections the species' altitudinal range can extend up to 800 m. Xanthophyllum lineare is protected in situ in Sapagaya Forest Reserve, which is a Totally protected area (TPA). There is no known ex situ collection for this species.
