Once a common species, it is now becoming rare. Found in New Mexico and Arizona, with a total of eight element occurrences. One 1988 collection from Chihuahua, Mexico. Possibly at a few additional sites in Mexico, but information is lacking. Some protection afforded to the populations in Coronado and Gila National Forests. Grazing is one of the major threats to this species.
