IUCN Status

Is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.

Near Threatened - Is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.


The IUCN Red List assessments presented here may deviate from the global IUCN listings for the following reasons:

  • for well-known species groups, such as vascular plants or vertebrates, updates proposed to the IUCN are shown, rather than the outdated, but currently-used status;
  • for poorly-known species groups, such as lichenized fungi, a general assessment is not currently possible, therefore the list presented here is the regional IUCN Red List for the Galapagos Archipelago.

Distribution

Only present on Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristóbal Island.
