Score3 - Vey Small: Generally <2,000 individuals.
Commentvery few individuals documented.
Score2 - Regional or State Endemic or Small Montana Range: Generally restricted to an area <100,000 sq. miles (equivalent to 2/3 the size of Montana or less) or Montana contributes 50% or more of the species’ range or populations OR limited to 2-3 Sub-basins in Montana.
Area of Occupancy
Score3 - Very Low: Generally occurring in 3 or fewer Subwatersheds (6th Code HUC’s).
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).
CommentHabitat does not appear to be unique nor especially rare.
ScoreNA - Rank factor not assessed.
CommentTrends are unknown.
Score1 - Medium: 11-30% of the populations are being negatively impacted or are likely to be impacted by one or more activities or agents, which are expected to result in decreased populations and/or habitat quality and/or quantity.
CommentNo specific threat or combination of threats appear to be severe in magnitude or immediacy. Timber harvesting, road maintenance and successional dynamics all have the potential to detrimentally impact the species, though none appear to be significant threats at this time.
Score0-2 - Vulnerability Unknown.
CommentSpecific life history attributes which may limit the species' viability are undocumented.
