Range Extent Comments: Regional endemic of southwest Montana and northwest Wyoming. Reports from elsewhere in northwest North America have largely proven to be false.

Number of Occurrences: 21 - 80
Number of Occurrences Comments: Ca. 30-40 EOs known in Montana, abundance in other states unknown, but nowhere common.

Population Size Comments: Populations are generally small but dense.

Overall Threat Impact Comments: Habitat is often remote and/or protected in wilderness areas.

Short-term Trend: Relatively Stable (<=10% change)
Short-term Trend Comments: Apparently stable; much of its habitat is now designated wilderness.
