73 Fed. Reg. 21643 (Tuesday, April 22, 2008)(DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR; Fish and Wildlife Service; Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 5-Year Reviews; Notice of initiation of review; Request for information on seven listed midwestern species.)
SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), initiate 5-year reviews of three endangered species (least tern-interior population, Illinois cave amphipod, and Minnesota dwarf trout lily) and four threatened species (Lake Erie water snake, Lakeside daisy, Leedy's roseroot and northern wild monkshood) 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. Based on the results of these 5-year reviews, we will make a finding on whether these species are properly classified under the Act. DATES: To allow us adequate time to conduct these reviews, we must receive your information no later than June 23, 2008.
