NatureServe Status

Global Status: G1
Global Status Last Reviewed: 04Sep2009
Global Status Last Changed: 03May1996
Rounded Global Status: G1 - Critically Imperiled
Reasons: A rare lichen described in 1995 from two specimens in two Idaho counties (Latah and Clearwater Cos.). The type locality has been degraded by installation of a culvert under the nearby road. In addition, the east slope leading to the creek where the occurrence sits was clearcut.

It should be noted that the published type location information says 'St. Joe National Forest, Latah Co., Laird Park, Moose Creek Divide', however this information is incorrect and the type location was confirmed as Big Sand Creek, Latah Co. by Doyle Anderegg and Juanita Litchardt (Idaho Conservation Data Center).

NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: Original description based on specimens from Latah and Idaho counties, Idaho (Hammer, 1995), but not clear if that is the whole distribution.

Number of Occurrences: 1 - 5
Number of Occurrences Comments: There are two occurrences of this species, one the type collection in Latah Co. Idaho, and the other in Clearwater Co. in the Clearwater National Forest.

Number of Occurrences with Good Viability/Integrity: None (zero)
Viability/Integrity Comments: The only element occurrence of this species maintained by the Idaho Conservation Center is ranked with 'poor viability'.

Overall Threat Impact Comments: The type location of this species is one of two locations known. Cladonia andereggii is endemic to Idaho, east of the Cascade Mountains, in damp, shady, riparian forest. The type location has been degraded by a culvert that was installed under the road near the creek, and the slopes were clearcut that lead down to the creek (NatureServe Element Occurrence data 1999).

Short-term Trend: Decline of 10-50%
Short-term Trend Comments: A survey in 1999 of the type location by Juanita Litchhardt and Doyle Anderegg did not relocate the species (NatureServe Element Occurrence data).

Environmental Specificity: Very narrow to narrow.
Environmental Specificity Comments: The habitat requirements for this species are quite narrow, as it's found in shady, damp forests.

Basic Description: The thallus of this lichen is greenish to glaucescent-greenish above, whitish and darkening toward base and central portions; thin and fragile toward edges but quite thick (> 1 mm) toward the base, to 2.5 cm long and to 8 mm wide; deeply incised with sinuate lobes 1-2 mm wide (Hammer, 1995).
Habitat Comments: Growing with bryophytes in deep shade, damp area near stream (Hammer, 1995).

Management Summary
Help
Stewardship Overview: Any activities that disrupt the required habitat conditions should be avoided. Clearcutting the surronding forest near the occurrences has been shown to be damaging to the species since it disturbs the forest moisture balance, among other things. Clearcutting near the populations of this rare lichen should be avoided. Further, any activities that disturb the nearby streams, such as road construction or other kinds of construction or any activities that could degrade the stream banks, should be halted. Construction or earth moving of any sort can loosen soil which causes higher sediment loads into surrounding streams, as well as streambank erosion. Ultimately, these sorts of activities could reduce the areas' air moisture and water quality.
