Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-
Year Status Reviews of 66 Species in California and Nevada

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 of 66 species in California and Nevada under the 
Endangered Species Act. A 5-year review is based on the best scientific 
and commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, we 
are requesting submission of any new information on these species that 
has become available since the last review.

DATES: To ensure consideration in our reviews, we are requesting 
submission of new information no later than March 27, 2020. However, we 
will continue to accept new information about any species at any time.

ADDRESSES: For how and where to submit information or questions, see 
Request for New Information.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions, please contact 
Peter Erickson, 916-414-6741. For whom to contact with species-specific 
information or questions, see Request for New Information.
    Individuals who are hearing impaired or speech impaired may call 
the Federal Relay Service at 800-877-8337 for TTY assistance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Why do we conduct 5-year reviews?

    Under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act; 16 
U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), we maintain lists of endangered and threatened 
wildlife and plant species (referred to as the List) in the Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.11 (for wildlife) 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. 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 to benefit the 
species;
    (D) Threat status and trends in relation to the five listing 
factors (as defined in section 4(a)(1) of the Act); 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?
