Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.
Notice of initiation of 5-year reviews; availability of completed 5-year reviews.
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, initiate 5-year reviews for 58 species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). We request any new information on these species that may have a bearing on their classification as endangered or threatened (see Table 1 below). Based on the results of these 5-year reviews, we will make a finding on whether these species are properly classified under the Act. We also indicate in this notice 42 5-year reviews we completed for species in California and Nevada in mid to late Fiscal Year (FY) 2008. Reviews we completed for 16 species in early FY 2008 were indicated in our previous initiation notice published in the Federal Register on March 5, 2008 (73 FR 11945).
To allow us adequate time to conduct these reviews, we must receive your information no later than May 26, 2009. However, we will continue to accept new information about any listed species at any time.
For instructions on how to submit information and review the information that we receive on these species, see “Public Solicitation of New Information.”Start Further Info

Why Do We Conduct a 5-Year Review
Under the Endangered Species Act (Act) (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), we maintain a List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants at 50 CFR 17.11 (for animals) and 17.12 (for plants) (List). We amend the List by publishing final rules in the Federal Register. Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the Act requires that we conduct a review of listed species at least once every 5 years. Section 4(c)(2)(B) requires that we determine (1) whether a species no longer meets the definition of threatened or endangered and should be removed from the List (delisted); (2) whether a species listed as endangered more properly meets the definition of threatened and should be reclassified to threatened; or (3) whether a species listed as threatened more properly meets the definition of endangered and should be reclassified to endangered. Using the best scientific and commercial data available, a species will be considered for delisting if the data substantiate that the species is neither endangered nor threatened for one or more of the following reasons: (1) The species is considered extinct; (2) the species is considered to be recovered; and/or (3) the original data available when the species was listed, or the interpretation of such data, were in error. Any change in Federal classification requires a separate rulemaking process. We are requesting submission of any new information (best scientific and commercial data) on these species since they were originally listed or since the species' most recent status review.
Our regulations at 50 CFR 424.21 require that we publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing those species currently under review. This notice announces initiation of our active review of 58 species in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. This notice announces initiation of our active review of the species in Table 1.Start Printed Page 12879

How Are These Species Currently Listed
The current listing status of species for which 5-year reviews are being initiated by this notice is identified in Table 1 above. The current status may Start Printed Page 12882also be found on the List, which covers all endangered and threatened species, and which is available on our Internet site at http://endangered.fws.gov/wildlife.html#Species.
Definitions Related to This Notice
To help you submit information about the species we are reviewing, we provide the following definitions:
Species includes any species or subspecies of fish, wildlife, or plant, and any distinct population segment of any species of vertebrate, which interbreeds when mature;
Endangered species means any species that is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range; and
Threatened species means any species that is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range.
Experimental population means any population (including any offspring arising solely therefrom) authorized by the Secretary of the Interior for release outside the current range of nonexperimental populations of the same species, but only when, and at such times as, the population is wholly separate geographically from nonexperimental populations of the same species. Each member of a nonessential experimental population shall be treated, except when it occurs in an area within the National Wildlife Refuge System or the National Park System, as a species proposed to be listed under section 4 of the Endangered Species Act.
How Do We Determine Whether a Species Is Endangered or Threatened
Section 4(a)(1) of the Act requires that we determine whether a species is endangered or threatened based on one or more of the five following factors: (A) The present or threatened destruction, modification, or curtailment of its habitat or range; (B) Overutilization for commercial, recreational, scientific, or educational purposes; (C) Disease or predation; (D) The inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms; or (E) Other natural or manmade factors affecting its continued existence. Section 4(b)(1)(A) of the Act requires that our determination be made on the basis of the best scientific and commercial data available.
What Could Happen as a Result of Our Review
For each species under review, if we find new information that indicates a change in classification may be warranted, we may propose a new rule that could do one of the following: (a) Reclassify the species from threatened to endangered (uplist); (b) reclassify the species from endangered to threatened (downlist); or (c) remove the species from the List (delist). If we determine that a change in classification is not warranted, then the species will remain on the List under its current status.
Completed 5-Year Reviews
We also take this opportunity to inform the public of 42 5-year reviews that we completed in mid to late FY 2008 for species in California and Nevada. These 42 reviews can be found at http://www.fws.gov/cno/es/5yr.html. Any recommended change in listing status will require a separate rulemaking process.
