Summary Rank: E

Recreational caving may lead to abandonement of the cave in certain situations due to this species' low tolerance of disturbance and could therefore impact localized populations.  In addition, spread of White-nose fungus from infected to uninfected caves by humans has become a major concern (Frick et al 2010).
