*SX = Extirpated: Element is believed to be extirpated from the state

*S1= Critically imperiled in the state because of extreme rarity or because of some factor(s) making it especially vulnerable to extirpation from the state (typically 5 or fewer occurrences or very few remaining individuals

*S2= Imperiled in the state because of rarity or because of some factor (s) making it very vulnerable to extirpation from the state. (6 to 20 occurences or few remaining individuals or acres)

*S3= Rare and uncommon in the state. (21 to 100 occurrences)

*S4= Widespread, abundant, and apparently secure in state, with many occurrences, but the species is of long-term concern. (usually more than 100 occurrences)
