NatureServe Status

Global Status: G3
Global Status Last Reviewed: 01Feb1992
Global Status Last Changed: 08Feb1991
Rounded Global Status: G3 - Vulnerable
Reasons: The number of known and potential EOs and the location of many of them within Hells Canyon provide some security. However, grazing does represent a potentially significant threat.
Nation: United States
National Status: N3

NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: The range of this species is ca. 90 miles x 5-15 miles and includes Asotin Co., Washington, Wallowa Co., Oregon and Nez Perce, Lewis, and Idaho cos., Idaho.

Number of Occurrences: 21 - 80
Number of Occurrences Comments: 44 relatively recent EOs are known and an additional 6 historic EOs have been documented.

Population Size Comments: No abundance data are available. Observations range from "locally common" to "small local population."

Overall Threat Impact Comments: Conversion of habitat to agricultural use and heavy livestock grazing are the greatest threats.

Short-term Trend: Relatively Stable (<=10% change)
Short-term Trend Comments: Although some historically known populations have apparently been extirpated, overall the species' population appears stable.

Intrinsic Vulnerability Comments: The species does not appear to do well under heavy livestock grazing, although it does occur at sites which are early seral as a result of past grazing.
