Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

We, the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), published a final rule to add two marine taxa to the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in accordance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended, on November 16, 2005. For one of the two taxa, the white abalone (Haliotis sorenseni), we incorrectly published in the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife at § 17.11(h) that the species was Threatened, when it is actually listed as Endangered. We now correct that error.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

November 16, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the November 16, 2005, Federal Register (70 FR 69464), we published a final rule to add two marine taxa to the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife (List) in accordance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). For one of the two taxa, the white abalone (Haliotis sorenseni), we incorrectly indicated in the List at § 17.11(h) that this species was Threatened, when we should have indicated that it was Endangered. We now correct that error. This correction is typographical in nature and involves no substantial changes to the substance in the contents of our prior final rule.
