SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Why do we conduct 5–year reviews? Under the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer to as the List) in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.11 (for animals) and 17.12 (for plants). Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the Act requires us to review each listed species’ status at least once every 5 years. Then, under section 4(c)(2)(B), we determine whether to remove any species from the List (delist), to reclassify it from endangered to threatened, or to reclassify it from threatened to endangered. Any change in Federal classification requires a separate rulemaking process. In classifying, we use the following definitions, from 50 CFR 424.02: (A) Species includes any species or subspecies of fish, wildlife, or plant, and any distinct population segment of any species of vertebrate, that interbreeds when mature; (B) Endangered species means any species that is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range; and (C) Threatened species means any species that is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range. We must support delisting by the best scientific and commercial data available, and only consider delisting if data substantiates that the species is neither endangered nor threatened for one or more of the following reasons (50 CFR 424.11(d)): (A) The species is considered extinct; (B) The species is considered to be recovered; or E:\FR\FM\08JNN1.SGM 08JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 110 / Wednesday, June 8, 2011 / Notices (C) The original data available when the species was listed, or the interpretation of data, were in error. Our regulations at 50 CFR 424.21 require that we publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing the species we are reviewing. 33335 II. What species are under review?

We consider all new information available at the time we conduct a 5year status review. We consider the best scientific and commercial data that has become available since our current listing determination or most recent status review, such as: (A) Species biology, including but not limited to population trends, distribution, abundance, demographics, and genetics; (B) Habitat conditions, including but not limited to amount, distribution, and suitability; (C) Conservation measures that have been implemented that benefit the species; (D) Threat status and trends (see five factors under heading ‘‘How Do We Determine Whether a Species Is Endangered or Threatened?’’); and (E) Other new information, data, or corrections, including but not limited to taxonomic or nomenclatural changes, identification of erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical methods. We specifically request data from any systematic surveys, as well as any studies or analysis of data that may show any of the following: (A) Population size or trends; (B) Species biology or ecology; VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:51 Jun 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 Threatened ........................ U.S.A. (DE, GA, MD, NJ, NC, SC, VA). (C) The effects of current land management on population distribution and abundance; (D) The current condition of habitat; (E) Recent conservation measures that have been implemented to benefit the species; (F) Current distribution of populations; (G) Evaluation of threats faced by the species in relation to the five listing factors (as defined below and in section 4(a)(1) of the Act); or (H) The species’ listed status as judged against the definition of threatened or endangered. IV. How do we determine whether a species is endangered or threatened? Section 4(a)(1) of the Act requires that we determine whether a species is endangered or threatened based on one or more of the five following factors: (A) The present or threatened destruction, modification, or curtailment of its habitat or range; (B) Overutilization for commercial, recreational, scientific, or educational purposes; (C) Disease or predation; (D) The inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms; or (E) Other natural or manmade factors affecting its continued existence. Under section 4(b)(1) of the Act, we must base our assessment of these PO 00000 Frm 00145 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 September 9, 1988 (53 FR 35076). factors solely on the best scientific and commercial data available. V. What could happen as a result of our review? For each species under review, if we find new information that indicates a change in classification may be warranted, we may propose a new rule that could do one of the following: (A) Reclassify the species from threatened to endangered (uplist); (B) Reclassify the species from endangered to threatened (downlist); or (C) Remove the species from the List (delist). If we determine that a change in classification is not warranted, then the species remains on the List under its current status. VI. Request for new information To ensure that a 5-year review is complete and based on the best available scientific and commercial information, we request new information from all sources. See ‘‘What Information Do We Consider in Our Review?’’ for specific criteria.

Year Reviews of Nine Species: Purple Bean, Clubshell, Roanoke Logperch, 
Swamp Pink, Northern Riffleshell, Flat-spired Three-toothed Land Snail, 
Puritan Tiger Beetle, Dwarf Wedgemussel, and Bog Turtle

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of initiation of review/reviews; request for 
information.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are initiating 5-year 
status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended 
(Act), of nine species. We conduct these reviews to ensure that our 
classification of each species on the Lists of Endangered and 
Threatened Wildlife and Plants as threatened or endangered is accurate. 
A 5-year review assesses the best scientific and commercial data 
available at the time of the review. We are requesting any information 
that has become available since our original listing of each of these 
species. Based on review results, we will determine whether we should 
change the listing status of any of these species.

DATES: To ensure consideration, please send your written information by 
August 8, 2011.

ADDRESSES: For how and where to send information, see ``VIII., 
Contacts'' near end of SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary Parkin, by U.S. mail at U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service, Northeast Region, 300 Westgate Center Drive,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Why do we conduct 5-year reviews?

    Under the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), we maintain Lists of 
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively 
refer to as the List) in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 
CFR 17.11 (for animals) and 17.12 (for plants). Section 4(c)(2)(A) of 
the Act requires us to review each listed species' status at least once 
every 5 years. Then, under section 4(c)(2)(B), we determine whether to 
remove any species from the List (delist), to reclassify it from 
endangered to threatened, or to reclassify it from threatened to 
endangered. Any change in Federal classification requires a separate 
rulemaking process.
    In classifying, we use the following definitions, from 50 CFR 
424.02:
    (A) Species includes any species or subspecies of fish, wildlife, 
or plant, and any distinct population segment of any species of 
vertebrate, that interbreeds when mature;
    (B) Endangered species means any species that is in danger of 
extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range; and
    (C) Threatened species means any species that is likely to become 
an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a 
significant portion of its range.
    We must support delisting by the best scientific and commercial 
data available, and only consider delisting if data substantiates that 
the species is neither endangered nor threatened for one or more of the 
following reasons (50 CFR 424.11(d)):
    (A) The species is considered extinct;
    (B) The species is considered to be recovered; or

[[Page 33335]]

    (C) The original data available when the species was listed, or the 
interpretation of data, were in error.
    Our regulations at 50 CFR 424.21 require that we publish a notice 
in the Federal Register announcing the species we are reviewing.

II. What species are under review?

    This notice announces our active 5-year status [reviews] of the

III. What Do We Consider in Our Review?

    We consider all new information available at the time we conduct a 
5-year status review. We consider the best scientific and commercial 
data that has become available since our current listing determination 
or most recent status review, such as:
    (A) Species biology, including but not limited to population 
trends, distribution, abundance, demographics, and genetics;
    (B) Habitat conditions, including but not limited to amount, 
distribution, and suitability;
    (C) Conservation measures that have been implemented that benefit 
the species;
    (D) Threat status and trends (see five factors under heading ``How 
Do We Determine Whether a Species Is Endangered or Threatened?''); and
    (E) Other new information, data, or corrections, including but not 
limited to taxonomic or nomenclatural changes, identification of 
erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical 
methods.
    We specifically request data from any systematic surveys, as well 
as any studies or analysis of data that may show any of the following:
    (A) Population size or trends;
    (B) Species biology or ecology;
    (C) The effects of current land management on population 
distribution and abundance;
    (D) The current condition of habitat;
    (E) Recent conservation measures that have been implemented to 
benefit the species;
    (F) Current distribution of populations;
    (G) Evaluation of threats faced by the species in relation to the 
five listing factors (as defined below and in section 4(a)(1) of the 
Act); or
    (H) The species' listed status as judged against the definition of 
threatened or endangered.

IV. How do we determine whether a species is endangered or threatened?

    Section 4(a)(1) of the Act requires that we determine whether a 
species is endangered or threatened based on one or more of the five 
following factors:
    (A) The present or threatened destruction, modification, or 
curtailment of its habitat or range;
    (B) Overutilization for commercial, recreational, scientific, or 
educational purposes;
    (C) Disease or predation;
    (D) The inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms; or
    (E) Other natural or manmade factors affecting its continued 
existence.
    Under section 4(b)(1) of the Act, we must base our assessment of 
these factors solely on the best scientific and commercial data 
available.

V. What could happen as a result of our review?

    For each species under review, if we find new information that 
indicates a change in classification may be warranted, we may propose a 
new rule that could do one of the following:
    (A) Reclassify the species from threatened to endangered (uplist);
    (B) Reclassify the species from endangered to threatened 
(downlist); or
    (C) Remove the species from the List (delist).
    If we determine that a change in classification is not warranted, 
then the species remains on the List under its current status.

VI. Request for new information

    To ensure that a 5-year review is complete and based on the best 
available scientific and commercial information, we request new 
information from all sources. See ``What Information Do We Consider in 
Our Review?'' for specific criteria. If you submit information, support 
it with documentation such as maps, bibliographic references, methods 
used to gather and analyze the data, and/or copies of any pertinent 
publications,
