Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 5-Year Status 
Reviews of Three Species in Washington, Oregon, and California; 
Reopening of Public Comment Period

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

[[Page 22140]]

ACTION: Notice of initiation of reviews; request for information; 
reopening of comment period.


SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, recently initiated 5-
year reviews for the Oregon silverspot butterfly (Speyeria zerene 
hippolyta), northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis caurina), and 
Stephanomeria malheurensis (Malheur wire-lettuce) under the Endangered 
Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION 
for details. Because we may not have received some comments submitted 
by email, we now reopen the comment period. 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 our 
5-year reviews we will determine whether these species are properly 
classified under the Act.

DATES: To ensure consideration in our reviews, we are requesting 
submission of new information no later than May 20, 2011. However, we 
will continue to accept new information about any listed species at any 

ADDRESSES: Submit information to: Field Supervisor, Attention: 5-Year 
Review, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Oregon Fish and Wildlife 
Office, 2600 SE. 98th Avenue, Suite 100, Portland, OR 97266. 
Information can also be submitted by e-mail to:

are hearing impaired or speech impaired may call the Federal Relay 
Service at (800) 877-8337 for TTY assistance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 24, 2010, we published a notice 
initiating 5-year reviews for 58 species in Washington, Oregon, 
California, and Hawaii and requesting public comment for a 60-day 
comment period (75 FR 71726). Due to a typographical error in the email 
address for the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office, we may not have 
received some comments for three of these species (Oregon silverspot 
butterfly, northern spotted owl, and Stephanomeria malheurensis) if 
they were submitted by email. Therefore, we are reopening the comment 
period for these three species to allow comments to be resubmitted if 
necessary. Comments that were originally sent by regular mail, or 
comments addressing the other 55 species in the original notice, need 
not be resubmitted.
    Please refer to our notice of November 24, 2010, for background 
information on the 5-year review process. As stated in that notice, to 
ensure that a 5-year review is complete and based on the best available 
scientific and commercial information, we request new information from 
all sources. If you submit information, please support it with 
documentation such as maps, bibliographic references, methods used to 
gather and analyze the data, and/or copies of any pertinent 
publications, reports, or letters by knowledgeable sources.

Public Availability of Comments

    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.
    Comments and materials received will be available for public 
inspection, by appointment, during normal business hours at the offices 
where the comments are submitted.
