Title: Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Listing Determination for the Hermes Copper Butterfly With 4(d) Rule and Designation of Critical Habitat 
Abstract:

We will make a final determination on our proposal to list the Hermes copper butterfly (Lycaena [Hermelycaena] hermes), a butterfly species from San Diego County, California, and Baja California, Mexico, as a threatened species and to designate critical habitat for the species under the Endangered Species Act. If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Act’s protections to this species as described in the proposed rule.
