Hoy, el Servicio Federal de Pesca y Vida Silvestre propone remover a Adiantum vivesii de la Ley de Especies en Peligro de Extinción (ESA, por sus siglas en inglés). Después de una revisión de la mejor data científica y comercial disponible, incluyendo la revisión de estatus de la especie de 5 años, el Servicio ha determinado que Adiantum vivesii es un híbrido estéril de dos especies de helechos comunes. Por consiguiente, no cumple con la definición legal de una especie bajo la ESA.
