1Rayed Bean - These counties have been included for the rayed bean based upon current and historical occurrence data. Since 2004, three extant rayed bean populations have been discovered in Ohio streams. Two of these three populations were thought to be extirpated prior to the discoveries and the third population was not known from historical data. Therefore, we feel it is prudent to make our list of counties where the rayed bean may be present reflective of a conservative approach to section 7 consultation under the Endangered Species Act. The rayed bean should be considered potential present in any county on our list where suitable habitat occurs.
