COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Alkaline Wing-nerved Moss in Canada

Special Significance of the Species

Pterygoneurum kozlovii is restricted to Canada in North America. Also, although it is relatively widespread in southern British Columbia, it is usually not common, either at most sites where it is known, or across its range. Further, it is found in a number of threatened habitats, such as in the endangered Purshia tridentata ecosystem in the south Okanagan Valley; some populations of P. kozlovii have been eliminated in this area.
