NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G4 - Apparently Secure
Reasons: Stylisma pickeringii is somewhat rare across a fairly large portion of its range. A total of 77 extant occurrences of both varieties (var. pickeringii and var. pattersonii) are known, but the actual total of occurrences is likely over 100 because S. pickeringii var. pattersonii is sufficiently common not to be tracked in Texas and Oklahoma. Many occurrences of both varieties are vulnerable to habitat destruction or disruption of the natural fire regime.
