Conservation status in Cameroon.

Ledermanniella pollardiana   is not as yet assessed for the IUCN Red List. Onana and Cheek (2011) assessed this species as Critically Endangered. The taxon is endemic to Cameroon, and known from only the type locality. The extent of occurrence and the area of occupancy are both estimated at 4 km2 each. Agricultural activities in the general area of the locality; with increased turbidity and siltation from agricultural practices will adversely affect the species. The species is here reassessed and Critically Endangered status maintained. IUCN Red List Category: Critically Endangered CRB2ab (iii).
