Response Statement - Poweshiek Skipperling
The Canadian population is isolated and disjunct from the populations in United States which are 1000 km to the south. Widespread declines within the past decade on both sides of the border mean Canada holds a significant portion of the species global range. Within Canada this species is restricted to native tall-grass prairie, a habitat that has also undergone similar declines. Although most of the occupied habitat is protected, even with appropriate management, its range is so small that the butterfly is increasingly vulnerable to stochastic events.
