Rounded Global Status Rank: G3 - Vulnerable

Reasons: Endemic to New Mexico, Astragalus accumbens is known to occur in four counties. Two occurrences lie in Cibola National Forest in Cibola and McKinley Counties. The milk-vetch grows on clay soils and is found in canyons, banks, and knolls. This plant could be adversely affected by uranium mining.
