AGENCY:

Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION:

Notice of 90-day petition finding; correction.

SUMMARY:

On Wednesday, December 16, 2009, we, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, announced a 90-day finding on 192 species from a petition to list 475 species in the Southwest region of the United States as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). In that notice, we used an incorrect docket number in one place and asked commenters submitting hardcopy comments to refer to this docket number in their comments. The correct docket number is [FWS-R2-ES-2008-0130]. However, comments we received under the incorrect docket number will be routed to the correct docket. If you already submitted a comment, even with the incorrect docket number, you need not resubmit it.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On Wednesday, December 16, 2009, we announced a 90-day finding on 192 species from a petition we received to list 475 species in the Southwest region of the United States as threatened or endangered under the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) (74 FR 66865). We found that the petition presented substantial information indicating that 67 of the 192 species may warrant listing as threatened or endangered. When we make a finding that a petition presents substantial information indicating that listing a species may be warranted, we are required to promptly review the status of the species (status review). For the status review to be complete and based on the best available scientific and commercial information, we requested information on each of the 67 species from governmental agencies, Native American Tribes, the scientific community, industry, and any other interested parties.

In that notice, we asked commenters to refer to an incorrect docket number when submitting comments via U.S. mail or hand delivery. The correct docket number is [FWS-R2-ES-2008-0130], and our instructions to persons submitting comments electronically included the correct docket number. All hardcopy comments received under the incorrect docket number will be routed to the correct docket. If you already submitted a comment, even with the incorrect docket number, you need not resubmit it. For more information about the species, background, and our finding, see our original notice at 74 FR 66865.
