Note 4 of Appendix 1

Canada General Status ranks were not assigned to subspecies or varieties. For subspecies or varieties known within Canada only from Nova Scotia, the Canada General Status Rank would be the same as the provincial rank by definition. In these cases, Canada General Status is given in square brackets. For subspecies or varieties known from other Canadian jurisdictions, Canada General Status is given as "[not ranked]".

Return to note 4 referrer of Appendix 1

Note 5 of Appendix 1

Threatened status under Species at Risk Act is pending.

Return to note 5 referrer of Appendix 1

Note 6 of Appendix 1

Listed as Special Concern under Schedule 3 of the Species at Risk Act, indicating that it has never been re-assessed following adoption of the act.

Return to note 6 referrer of Appendix 1

Note 7 of Appendix 1

Discovered in Canada after 2010 Canada General Status Ranks were prepared. Canada General Status equals provincial General Status by definition because it occurs nowhere else in Canada.
