Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    vulnerable (G3G4) (Source: NatureServe)
    Vulnerable. Occurs in scattered locations in southwestern Utah, southern Nevada, Arizona, and western New Mexico; recent survey in Arizona indicated local declines but no obvious major trend; now absent from historic localities in Arizona where the riparian corridor has been altered dramatically through the construction of impoundments; apparently being displaced by B. WOODHOUSII in some areas.
