Endangered Species Status for Bog Buck Moth (Draft)
Oct. 14, 2021
USFWS proposes to list the bog buck moth (Hemileuca maia menyanthevora) (= H.iroquois), a moth that occurs in Oswego County, New York (NY), and Ontario, Canada, as an endangered species under the ESA. After a review of the best available scientific and commercial information, they find that listing the species is warranted. Accordingly, they propose to list the bog buck moth as an endangered species under the Act. If finalized this rule would add this species to the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and extend the Act's protections to the species. USFWS have determined that designation of critical habitat for the bog buck moth is not prudent at this time. USFWS will accept comments received or postmarked on or before 13 December 2021. POC is David A. Stilwell, Field Supervisor, USFWS, New York Field Office, 3817 Luker Road, Cortland, NY 13045; tele 607-753-9334.
