Response Statement - Tiny Tassel
This very small moss has a very narrow range in Western Canada. It occurs only in the semiarid shrub steppe of four valleys in the Okanagan region of southernmost central British Columbia. Surveys have confirmed this species from only 20 sites on steep slopes associated with calcareous glacial lake deposits. Threats include erosion due to recreational use of the habitat, and maintenance of road cuts. Climate change may also be a threat, although the potential impacts are unknown. One site has been extirpated due to habitat conversion.
