Global Range: The calculated EOO is 170 sq km.
Regularity: Regularly occurring
Number of Occurrences
Note: For many non-migratory species, occurrences are roughly equivalent to populations.
Estimated Number of Occurrences: 6 - 20
Comments: There are 27 mapped occurrences (CNDDB 2013), but six of them are degraded and some of those may be extirpated. In addition, many of the sites have not been re-checked since the 1980's so this author doubts there are 27 occurrences anymore.
NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: T2 - Imperiled
Reasons: This succulent rosette plant is known from about 20-25 occurrences, many of which have not been seen in many years. At least six are in a degraded condition. The threats are quite high since this taxon occurs in a highly devleoping area near San Luis Obispo.
