COSEWIC Assessment and Status Report on the Banded Cord-moss in Canada

Special Significance of the Species

The British Columbia populations represent the northern extension of its very restricted range in North America. Most of the populations for this species are in Canada. This species is often found in seasonally wet habitats in Garry oak ecosystems, such as vernal pools and seepage areas on rock outcrops. These habitats are considered threatened and rare in British Columbia and Canada, and often house a number of rare species in addition to this moss.
