Global Protection: Several (4-12) occurrences appropriately protected and managed
Comments: This species occurs on several managed areas (see USFWS 1997). A substantial number of populations are on public land (USFWS 1997). Sites include Apalachicola and Osceola national forests and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Florida, Fort Stewart in Georgia, and Francis Marion National Forest in South Carolina. Outlook on private lands is poor.
Needs: Maintain ecological integrity of managed areas from which species is known. Limit collecting if exploitation is extensive. Protect populations on private lands by conservation agreements or land purchases.
