NatureServe Status

Global Status: G3T1
Global Status Last Reviewed: 11Jul1995
Global Status Last Changed: 06Dec1993
Rounded Global Status: T1 - Critically Imperiled
Reasons: A taxon with a very narrow range and low abundance: the Florida Natural Areas Inventory currently contains 35 occurrence records in its database, all located in Orange, Polk, and Osceola counties, Florida. Most of the occurrences are in degraded, roadside situations. There is great pressure on the habitat from unrestricted land development for housing and recreation.
Nation: United States
National Status: N1

NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: Orange and Polk Counties, Florida.

L. aridorum is only found in two counties on separate sand ridges. One is on the Mount Dora Ridge in western Orange County. It is found here scattered throughout a 2,400 acre area, from Apopka-Plymouth south through Ocoee, Turkey Lake, Lake Cain, Big Sand Lake, and along Interstate 4 from the Bee Line Expressway south to Lake Buena Vista (localities from U.S. Fish and Wildlife 1995). In Orange County, the plant is on public land at Lakes Cain and Marsha Park, Turkey Lake Park, Lake Tibbet-Butler Park, and along right-of-ways. At the second locale of L. aridorum, the Winter Haven Ridge in Polk County, there are no plants found on public land (Stout in prep). The plant can be found scattered on sites that total about 540 acres near Auburndale and Winter Haven (U.S. Fish and Wildlife 1995).

Stout (pers. comm.) thinks that the global habitat is similar to the present range and that L. aridorum was never on the Lake Wales Ridge.

Number of Occurrences: 6 - 20
Number of Occurrences Comments: Although twenty-seven mapped (1990) nearly all of these are roadside or degraded occurrences.

Overall Threat Impact Comments: Development pressure is extreme within the range of this plant (Disney/Orlando vicinity).
