Known only from two occurrences in southwestern Humboldt County, Nevada, and two occurrences in north-central Lassen County, California. The Nevada occurrences consist of about 85,000 individuals occupying no more than 27 ha of apparently suitable habitat. At least one of the California occurrences consists of 1000 plants over about 5 acres. All occurrences are vulnerable to noxious weed invasion and alteration of hydrology. Grazing occurs in the California occurrences. However, currently, all occurrences seem stable rather than declining. (2006).
Conservation measures implemented recently by the Bureau of Land Management in Nevada include the installation of fencing to exclude livestock, wild horses, burros and other large mammals; the closure of access roads to spring, riparian, and wetland areas

Conservation measures implemented recently by the Bureau of Land Management in Nevada include the installation of fencing to exclude livestock, wild horses, burros and other large mammals; the closure of access roads to spring, riparian, and wetland areas and the limiting of vehicles to designated routes; the establishment of a designated campground away from the habitats of sensitive species; the installation of educational signage; and, an increased staff presence, including law enforcement, a volunteer site steward during the 6-month period of peak visitor use, and noxious weed control. In California, public land management actions include not allowing livestock salting in the vicinity of springs, a proposed long-term monitoring plot, limitations on camping near springs, withdrawal from salable mineral leasing, recommendations to withdrawal the land from mineral entry, and noxious weed control treatments.
Monitor and collect data on the effects of the current management in regards to short-term and long-term effects.
