Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

It is occasional but widespread in Eurasia and North America, mainly in the boreal and hemiboreal regions. The area of occupancy (AOO) of this species is much larger than 2,000 km², and its extent of occurrence (EOO) is much larger than 20,000 km².


Population and Trends

The population size is likely to be very large since this is such a widespread species in a more or less stable habitat. There is no indication of any decline.

Population Trend:
