NatureServe Status

Global Status: G4
Global Status Last Reviewed: 25Aug2016
Global Status Last Changed: 22Jun1990
Ranking Methodology Used: Ranked by calculator
Rounded Global Status: G4 - Apparently Secure
Reasons: Fairly widespread, occurring from Minnesota to New Brunswick and in central Canada, but apparently rare to scattered across its range. This species has been overlooked and may be more abundant than we think.
Nation: United States
National Status: NNR
Nation: Canada
National Status: N3N4 (16Dec2017)

NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: Central Alberta to west-central Saskatchewan; Ontario and Minnesota east to New York and Maine; west Bonaventure Co., Quebec to south New Brunswick (Ball and White 1982, Kartesz 1999).

Number of Occurrences: 81 to >300

Population Size Comments: The large rivers of central and northern ME (Penobscot, St. John, Piscataquis, Kennebec, etc.) have the most.

Overall Threat Impact Comments: New dams might destroy some large populations.

Intrinsic Vulnerability Comments: Seems to do very well on shore lines that are scoured by spring floods.
