Stylosanthes bracteata has a large geographical distribution with an estimated EOO of 1,160,000 km² as based on vouchered specimen collections. The taxon's habitat is known to have been drastically modified by human activity, particularly in the Distrito Federal, Brazil. The taxon is known to occur within the protected areas network; however, the area has a fairly poor coverage of internationally recognized protected areas. There is no data available relating to the population size of this taxon but it is likely that the population has declined over the last 30-40 years. At present this taxon does not qualify for a threatened category, however, the population of this taxon should be monitored to ensure that it does not fall into a threatened category in the near future. A rating of Least Concern has been assigned at present.
