Response Statement - Hungerford's Crawling Water Beetle

A probable early postglacial relict, this water beetle is endemic to the upper Great Lakes and is Endangered in the US. In Canada, it is restricted to a small area and is known from only 3 locations in Ontario. This species has declined and may be extirpated at the North Saugeen River. It is threatened by further planned developments at the North Saugeen and Saugeen River locations, by hydrological alterations at the Rankin River location, and by continuing declines in water quality due to events associated with increasing human population at all locations.
