Threats
Subpopulations on the coast are threatened by habitat loss to mining. Mining activities however affect only a small proportion (<10%) of this species' habitat, and is unlikely to lead to its extinction. Further inland, it is not threatened.
Population

Lachenalia krugeri is currently known from only three locations, but it occurs in a remote and botanically poorly explored area, and is likely to be more common than records indicate. More surveys are needed to determine the size and extent of the population.
