Justification
Albuca schlechteri is a very poorly known species. The type specimen was collected around 1893, and there are no other known collections. It belongs to a section of Albuca that is not yet taxonomically revised, and it may be overlooked or confused with other species. Since its distribution range and habitat requirements are uncertain, its risk of extinction cannot be assessed at present.
