Abstract

Timonius beamanii is endemic to Sabah with a narrow and restricted distribution range. It is a secondary species and can grow with ease on disturbed and opened sites. The estimated area of occupancy (AOO) and extent of occurrence (EOO) are 24 km2 and 34.2 km2 respectively. The species was recorded to occur in six localities, in which three are located within a Totally Protected Area (Kinabalu Parks). For the time being, populations located outside of the TPA are located in areas where forest cover is retained. Therefore, although there is decline in habitat it is not continuing decline. Hence, the species is assessed as Near Threatened. Timonius beamanii is endemic to Sabah, Malaysia. It is restricted to Ranau in Sabah.
