Listed as Critically Endangered in 1996 due to lack of survey information. Based on survey information it was concluded in 2000 that this species was extinct. However, in 2005, a news release from The Nature Conservancy indicated that this species had been rediscovered by Jeff Garner of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The rediscovery requires confirmation before the species status can be reassessed, but it is likely to be Critically Endangered.
