Only three extant populations of A. flagellaris occur along a 3.2-km stretch of highway south of Princeton in British Columbia. Suitable habitats for A. flagellaris are extremely rare in Canada and are restricted to the Princeton area. Opportunities for colonization are extremely limited. Road-building, housing developments, and recreational off-road vehicle use threaten the continued persistence of this species in Canada. The populations occur on private lands; in the absence of federal or provincial rare species legislation or active stewardship, these populations are not secure. Finally, the populations of A. flagellaris in British Columbia are at the northern extent of their range and may represent populations that are genetically distinct and important for the long-term survival and evolution of the species.
