There are 23 existing populations, some of them consisting of multiple hydrologically connected pondshores. There are four additional populations known from the early 1900s which have not been resurveyed.
The trend of most populations seem stable but populations can fluctuate dramatically depending upon water levels. A few populations have been negatively affected by Phragmites.
Almost all of the known historical populations remain extant so long-term trends remain rather stable. Future trends may be downward if populations of Phragmites are not controlled at occupied sites.
