Intrinsic Vulnerability: Unknown

Environmental Specificity: Very narrow. Specialist or community with key requirements scarce.
Environmental Specificity Comments: Appears to require early plant successional stages in xeric habitats in a restricted geographical area.

Other NatureServe Conservation Status Information

Inventory Needs: Survey and monitor known sites as well as search for additional ones. Focus some surveys in the Florida panhandle, where currently a large distributional hiatus occurs.

Protection Needs: Need to notify managers of Ocala National Forest that this element occurs on site and requires appropriate management.
