Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-
Year Status Reviews of 14 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 of 1973, as amended, 
for seven plant and seven 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 
October 30, 2020. 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 or, for general information, contact Laura Ragan; 
[email protected] 612-713-5157. 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 seven plant and seven 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.

Why do we conduct 5-year reviews?

    Under the ESA, we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer

[[Page 53843]]

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.
