Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-
Year Status Reviews of Six Listed Animal and Plant Species

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

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

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

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are initiating 5-year 
status reviews under the Endangered Species Act for two plant and four 
animal species. A 5-year status review is based on the best scientific 
and commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, we 
are requesting submission of any such information that has become 
available since the last review for the species.

DATES: To ensure consideration, please send your written information by 
June 24, 2019. However, we will continue to accept new information 
about any listed species at any time.

ADDRESSES: For instructions on how to submit information for each 
species, see the table in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request information, contact the 
appropriate person in the table in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION 
section. Individuals who are hearing impaired or speech impaired may 
call the Federal Relay Service at 800-877-8339 for TTY assistance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are initiating 5-year status reviews 
under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 
1531 et seq.), for the Missouri bladderpod (Physaria filiformis), 
decurrent false aster (Boltonia decurrens), gray bat (Myotis 
grisescens), grotto sculpin (Cottus specus), Ozark hellbender 
(Cryptobranchus alleganiensis bishop), and purple cat's paw 
pearlymussel (Epioblasma obliquata obliquata).

Why do we conduct 5-year reviews?

    Under the ESA, 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 ESA requires us to review 
each listed species' status at least once every 5 years. Our 
regulations at 50 CFR 424.21 require that we publish a notice in the 
Federal Register announcing those species under active review. For 
additional information about 5-year reviews, go to http://www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/recovery-overview.html, scroll down to ``Learn 
More about 5-Year Reviews,'' and click on our factsheet.

What information do we consider in our review?

    A 5-year review considers the best scientific and commercial data 
that have become available since the current listing determination or 
most recent status review of each species, 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 in relation to the five listing 
factors (as defined in section 4(a)(1) of the ESA); 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.
    New information will be considered in the 5-year review and ongoing 
recovery programs for the species.

What species are under review?

    This notice announces our active 5-year status reviews of the 
species in the following table.
