A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.
This species is widespread in the northern hemisphere, southern records could be introduced/mis-identifications.
With such a large range, the population size is suspected to be very large.
This species grows in association with Aspen and Birch (Sterry 2011).
