Federal and State Species Status code
LE = Listed endangered
LT = Listed threatened
LELT = Listed endangered in part of range, threatened in part of range
C = Candidate for federal listing, information indicates that listing is justified.
PE = Proposed endangered.
PT = Proposed threatened.
SE = State Endangered.
ST = State Threatened.
An endangered species is a species in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range (applied rangewide for federal status and statewide for state status)
A threatened species is a species likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future.
Global/State Rank Definition (applied rangewide for global rank and statewide for state rank)
- G1, S1 = Critically imperiled because of extreme rarity (5 or fewer occurrences or very few remaining individuals or acres) or because of some factor (s) making it especially vulnerable to extinction.
- G2, S2 = Imperiled because of rarity (6 to 20 occurrences or few remaining individuals or acres) or because of some factor(s) making it very vulnerable to extinction throughout its range.
- G3, S3 = Either very rare and local throughout its range, or found locally (even abundantly at some of its locations) in a restricted range, or vulnerable to extinction throughout its range because of other factors; in the range of 21 of 100 occurrences.
- G4, S4 = Apparently secure, though it may be quite rare in parts of its range, especially at the periphery with cause for long term concern.
- G5, S5 = Demonstrably secure, though it may be quite rare in parts of its range, especially at the periphery.
- GU, SU = Possibly in peril, but status uncertain, more information needed.
- GH, SH = Historically known to occur, could be rediscovered.
- GX, SX = Believed extinct, historical records only.
- G?, S? = Not yet ranked
- _?, _? = Inexact rank
- _T = Rank of subspecies or variety
- _Q = Taxonomic status is questionable, rank may change with taxonomy
- SZ = No definable occurrences for conservation purposes, usually assigned to migrants
- SP = Potential exists for occurrence in the state, but no occurrences
- SR = Element reported for the state but no persuasive documentation
- SA = Accidental or casual
