Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Near threatened (NT) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    Vulnerable (G3) (Source: NatureServe)
    Vulnerable. Occurs in California and western Oregon; substantial ongoing decline, apparently due to habitat alteration, impacts of airborne agrochemicals, and/or effects of exotic species, and because recolonization abilities may be greatly restricted by local extirpation patterns.
