Threats [-]
The primary threat to Botrychium lunaria is the loss of its open habitats to successional overgrowth and development. Trampling by visitors to the only known site is also a threat since the plants are small and easily overlooked.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
An evaluation of the management needs of the existing population should be undertaken.

Research Needs [-]
A long-term demographic study should be undertaken to understand the biology and trends of this plant in New York.
