STATUS AND RANK COMMENTS The full species American Pygmy Shrew (Sorex hoyi) has no additional regulatory status or conservation rank considerations beyond those listed above. However, the only Wyoming representative of American Pygmy Shrew is the isolated glacial relict subspecies Southern Rocky Mountain Pygmy Shrew (S. h. montanus; see Taxonomy, below), whose entire global range covers only a small portion of southern Wyoming and northern Colorado. At the subspecies level S. h. montanus is considered imperiled/vulnerable by NatureServe (Arlington, Virginia), and Wyoming supports a significant amount of its entire range.
