Lassics Lupine and Designation of Critical Habitat
Oct. 6, 2022
USFWS proposes to list the Lassics lupine (Lupinus constancei), a plant species native to northern California, as an endangered species and designate critical habitat under the ESA. This determination also serves as their 12-month finding on a petition to list the Lassics lupine. After a review of the best available scientific and commercial information, they find that listing the species is warranted. If finalized this rule as proposed, would add this species to the List of Endangered and Threatened Plants and extend the Act's protections to the species. They also propose to designate critical habitat for the Lassics lupine under the Act. In total, approximately 512 acres (ac) (207 hectares (ha)) in Humboldt and Trinity Counties, California, fall within the boundaries of the proposed critical habitat designation. In addition, we announce the availability of a draft economic analysis (DEA) of the proposed designation of critical habitat for the Lassics lupine. They will accept comments received or postmarked on or before 5 December 2022.
