Score2 - Small: Generally 2,000-10,000 individuals.
CommentThough precise population numbers are lacking, it appears that population numbers are less than 10,000 plants.
Score2-3 - Local or Regional Endemic: Species has a small to very small range, though its distribution is either imprecisely documented or information to precisely categorize it was lacking at the time its status was reviewed.
CommentEndemic to Carbon Co and adjacent WY with a possible population in ID.
Area of Occupancy
Score2 - Low: Generally occurring in 4-10 Subwatersheds (6th Code HUC’s).
CommentLimited to a few subwatersheds in the Bighorn basin. Additional collection data may show it to occur in additional subwatersheds in the vicinity.
Score1 - Moderate: Species is restricted to a specific habitat that is more widely distributed or to several restricted habitats and is typically dependent upon relatively unaltered, good-quality habitat (C Values of 5-7).
Score0-1 - Stable to Minor Declines:
CommentTrends are undocumented, but it does not appear that the species has experienced moderate or severe declines and habitat remains largely intact.
Score0-1 - Low to Medium.
CommentThreats to the species' viability are unknown, though initial assessments indicate that the the magnitude of any threats are probably low.
Score0-1 - Low to Moderate Vulnerability.
CommentSpecific life history attributes which may limit the species' viability are undocumented.
