COSEWIC Assessment Summary : Bogbean Buckmoth Hemileuca sp.
Assessment Summary – November 2009
Reason for designation
This very rare moth is only known from New York and Ontario. In Ontario, it is found in two widely separated fens. It is susceptible to the effects of exotic invasive plants, especially European Common Reed, that are crowding out its preferred foodplant, the Bogbean, and of potential flooding or drying of habitat resulting from manipulation of water levels at the main site.
Designated Endangered in November 2009.
