State Protection: Threatened
listed species are those with: 1) 6 to fewer than 20 extant sites, or 2) 1,000 to fewer than 3,000 individuals, or 3) restricted to not less than 4 or more than 7 U.S.G.S. 7 minute topographical maps, or 4) listed as threatened by U.S. Department of Interior.

Federal Protection: Not Listed

State Rarity Rank: S2
A State Rarity Rank of S2 means: This plant is threatened/imperiled in New York because of rarity (typically 6-20 populations or few remaining individuals) or is vulnerable to extirpation from New York due to biological factors.

Global Rarity Rank: G5
A Global Rarity Rank of G5 means: This species is demonstrably secure globally, though it may be quite rare in parts of its range, especially at the periphery.


Did you know?
Woodland agrimony is the smallest member of the Agrimonia genus in New York. The species name means "little beak" and refers to the small point on the top of the fruit formed by the mature sepals.

State Ranking Justification [-]
There are currently 17 known populations in the state but almost all of the populations have less than 100 plants. There is only one large population of more than 10,000 plants. There are 16 historical populations, mostly from the lower Hudson Valley and Long Island, but many of them have become extirpated by development. Population trends seem to be stable and threats to known populations are low.
