Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Revised Endangered Status, Revised Critical Habitat Designation, and Taxonomic Revision for Monardella linoides ssp. viminea
Document Number: 2011-24608
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-09-28
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the reopening of the comment period on the June 9, 2011, proposed rule to revise the listing and critical habitat designation for Monardella viminea (willowy monardella) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act) (76 FR 33880).

In the proposed rule that published June 9, 2011 (76 FR 33880), we recognized the taxonomic split of the listed entity, Monardella linoides ssp. viminea, into two distinct full species: Monardella viminea (willowy monardella) and Monardella stoneana (Jennifer's monardella). We proposed to retain the listing status of Monardella viminea as endangered; we proposed to remove protections afforded by the Act from those individuals now recognized as a separate species, Monardella stoneana, because the new species does not meet the definition of endangered or threatened under the Act; and we proposed revised critical habitat for Monardella viminea. We are reopening the comment period to allow all interested parties an opportunity to comment simultaneously on the proposed listing determinations and critical habitat designation, the associated DEA, and the amended required determinations section. Comments previously submitted need not be resubmitted, as they will be fully considered in preparation of the final rule.
