Droogmansia scaettaiana is a plant in the legume family Fabaceae, native to West Africa.

Distribution and habitat

Droogmansia scaettaiana is native to the region from Guinea to Ivory Coast. Its habitat is in grassland or savanna at altitudes of 330–1,700 m (1,100–5,600 ft).[1][2]

Droogmansia scaettaiana is threatened by mining activity at sites in Guinea and Liberia. Urbanization and agriculture pose a threat in other areas.[1]
