Vulnerable D1+2

Global rationale

This taxon is only known from two collections by its author, Robert P. Adams, made on 20 December 1998 only a few kilometres separate from each other. It is likely that it occurs more abundantly in this area of northern Mexico, but a search of the herbaria has not resulted in further specimens. Therefore its EOO is likely to be small, perhaps less than 100km² and its AOO smaller than 20km² with fewer than 1000 mature individuals.
