State Rarity Rank: S1S3
A State Rarity Rank of S1S3 means: Critically Imperiled, Imperiled, or Vulnerable in New York -- Conservation status is uncertain, and could range from especially vulnerable to disappearing from New York, to vulnerable to becoming imperiled in New York, due to rarity or other factors. More information is needed to assign a single conservation status.

Global Rarity Rank: G3G4
A Global Rarity Rank of G3G4 means: Vulnerable globally, or Apparently Secure -- At moderate risk of extinction, with relatively few populations or locations in the world, few individuals, and/or restricted range; or uncommon but not rare globally; may be rare in some parts of its range; possibly some cause for long-term concern due to declines or other factors. More information is needed to assign a single conservation status.

Did you know?
This species may require high quality pine barrens habitat and while prescribed burning is beneficial, extensive burning of the habitat during inappropriate seasons may be detrimental to the larvae, eggs, or adults.

State Ranking Justification [-]
This species is only known from the Albany Pine Bush and the Long Island Dwarf Pine Barrens. It should occur in barrens habitats on the Shawangunk Ridge and possibly additional ridges in southeastern New York, but additional inventory of these areas is needed. The current rank assumes that the Long Island occurrence is still extant.
