Zaluzianskya glandulosa is a rare, range-restricted and very poorly known species with an extent of occurrence (EOO) of less than 10 km². Its habitat is protected and it has no severe threats, and is therefore not suspected to be in danger of extinction. It is therefore listed under the IUCN 3.1. criteria as Least Concern but is nationally recognised as Critically Rare.

Habitat and Ecology
Major system
Major habitats
Cederberg Sandstone Fynbos
It occurs in sandy soils in mountain fynbos above 900 m.
This species' habitat is well-protected and it is not suspected to have any threats.

Zaluzianskya glandulosa was recorded only once, in 1953. Its local abundance and specific habitat requirements are not known. Field surveys are needed to relocate it in the wild, but it is not suspected to be threatened or declining as its habitat is well-protected. It is very likely merely overlooked.
