Recovery Strategy for the White Meconella (Meconella oregana) in Canada

White Meconella (Meconella oregana) is a small, globally imperilled, annual plant found in isolated sites from southern Vancouver Island to central California. Within its range, it is restricted to vernal seeps with thin soils and short turf plant communities.

There are only eight extant populations known from Canada, containing approximately 1,000 or fewer reproductive individuals in unfavourable years. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) has assessed White Meconella as Endangered, and in September 2006, the species was listed as Endangered under Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA).

Consultation period: 2012-12-20 to 2013-02-18
