Red List Category: Endangered.
Major Threats : There are no direct threats to the species. But the extreme fluctuations of the population, and the restricted habitat make the species vulnerable to accidental events like fires, diseases etc. Human activities don't threaten the species directly at present, but some subpopulations are potentially threatened by stock-breeders, roads and trails and reforestation activities.
Conservation Actions: The distribution area is included in the Biosphere Reserve and in the National and Natural Park on the Nevada mountain range (proposed as a LIC). Seeds are stored in seedbanks.
