Need for Correction

In a final rule NMFS published on December 12, 2014 (79 FR 73977) to list 5 species of sawfishes as endangered, we incorrectly included an instruction in the regulatory text section to delete the entry for a prior listing for a different sawfish (the U.S. Distinct Population Segment of smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata)) from the list of endangered species under the Endangered Species Act in 50 CFR 224.101(h). On page 74005, in column 3, amendatory instruction 2.A. is corrected to reads as follows:

“2. In § 224.101, paragraph (h), amend the table by:

A. Removing the “Sawfish, largetooth” entry.”
