Dichomeris vacciniella GNRS3S40.0020
Glena cognataria - Blueberry Gray Moth G4S3S40.0020
Hemaris gracilis - Slender Clearwing Moth G3G4S1S20.1284
Lyonia mariana - Staggerbush G5S50.00
Vaccinium crassifolium - Creeping Blueberry G5S50.00
Expected Number of Extirpations with a PE value (Sum of PE) = 0.1324
N = Number of Extant Species with a PE value = 3
Average PE = ENE/N = 0.0441
Number of S5 species = 2
Proportion of Secure Species = Number of S5 Species/N = 0.6667
Habitat Risk Index = ENE x (1 – PSS) = 0.0441
