Fish and Wildlife Service

50 CFR Part 17

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Addition of White 
Abalone and the United States Distinct Vertebrate Population Segment of 
the Smalltooth Sawfish to the List of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife; Correction

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.


SUMMARY: We, the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), published a final 
rule to add two marine taxa to the List of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife in accordance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as 
amended, on November 16, 2005. For one of the two taxa, the white 
abalone (Haliotis sorenseni), we incorrectly published in the List of 
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife at Sec.  17.11(h) that the species 
was Threatened, when it is actually listed as Endangered. We now 
correct that error.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 16, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marjorie Nelson, Branch of Listing, 
Endangered Species Program, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N. 
Fairfax Drive, Mail Stop 420, Arlington, Virginia 22203 (703-358-2105).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the November 16, 2005, Federal Register 
(70 FR 69464), we published a final rule to add two marine taxa to the 
List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife (List) in accordance with 
the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
seq.). For one of the two taxa, the white abalone (Haliotis sorenseni), 
we incorrectly indicated in the List at Sec.  17.11(h) that this 
species was Threatened, when we should have indicated that it was 
Endangered. We now correct that error. This correction is typographical 
in nature and involves no substantial changes to the substance in the 
contents of our prior final rule.
