ACTION: Notice of initiation of reviews; request for information. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are conducting 5-year status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 36 animal and plant 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. To ensure consideration, we are requesting submission of new DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36113 information no later than August 26, 2019. However, we will continue to accept new information about any listed species at any time. ADDRESSES: For how to submit information, see Request for Information and How Do I Ask Questions or Provide Information? in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information on a particular species, contact the appropriate person or office listed 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: Why do we conduct a 5-year review? Under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 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). Wildlife and plants on the List can be found at http:// ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listed Animals.jsp and http://ecos.fws.gov/ tess_public/pub/listedPlants.jsp, respectively. 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, refer to our factsheet at http:// www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/ recovery-overview.html. What information do we consider in our review? A 5-year review considers all new information available at the time of the review. In conducting these reviews, we consider the best scientific and commercial data that have become available since the 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 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, E:\FR\FM\26JYN1.SGM 26JYN1 36114 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 144 / Friday, July 26, 2019 / Notices identification of erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical methods. Any new information will be considered during the 5-year review and Common name Scientific name Listing status will also be useful in evaluating the ongoing recovery programs for the species.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-
Year Status Reviews of 36 Species in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, 
and Mexico

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 conducting 5-year 
status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 36 animal and plant 
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, we are requesting submission of new 
information no later than August 26, 2019. However, we will continue to 
accept new information about any listed species at any time.

ADDRESSES: For how to submit information, see Request for Information 
and How Do I Ask Questions or Provide Information? in the SUPPLEMENTARY 
INFORMATION section.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information on a particular 
species, contact the appropriate person or office listed 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:

Why do we conduct a 5-year review?

    Under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 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). 
Wildlife and plants on the List can be found at http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedAnimals.jsp and http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedPlants.jsp, respectively. 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, refer to our 
factsheet at http://www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/recovery-overview.html.

What information do we consider in our review?

    A 5-year review considers all new information available at the time 
of the review. In conducting these reviews, we consider the best 
scientific and commercial data that have become available since the 
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 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.
    Any new information will be considered during the 5-year review and 
will also be useful in evaluating the ongoing recovery programs for the 
species.

Which species are under review?

    The species in the following table are under active 5-year status 
review.
