One Species Not Warranted for Delisting and Seven Species Not Warranted for Listing as Endangered or Threatened Species (Final)
Dec. 29, 2022
USFWS announced findings that one species is not warranted for delisting and that seven species are not warranted for listing as endangered or threatened species under the ESA. After a thorough review of the best available scientific and commercial information, they find that it is not warranted at this time to delist Bone Cave harvestman (Texella reyesi; formerly listed as endangered as the Bee Creek Cave harvestman, Texella reddelli). They find that it is not warranted at this time to list Brandegee's buckwheat (Eriogonum brandegeei Rydberg), Chowanoke crayfish (Faxonius virginiensis), Cisco milkvetch (Astragalus sabulosus), stage station milkvetch (A. vehiculus), Isely's milkvetch (A. iselyi), Columbia Oregonian (Cryptomastix hendersoni), and Rye Cove cave isopod (Lirceus culveri). However, they ask the public to submit to them at any time any new information relevant to the status of any of the species mentioned above or their habitats. The findings in this document were made on 29 December 2022. For further information see federal register for POC. (Federal Register 29 December 2022).
