Title: Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removing Five Species From San Clemente Island From the Federal Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants 

This final rule will make a final determination on our proposal to delist the San Clemente Bell’s sparrow (Artemisiospiza belli clementeae) (formerly known as the San Clemente sage sparrow, Amphispiza belli clementeae), San Clemente Island bush-mallow (Malacothamnus clementinus), San Clemente Island paintbrush (Castilleja grisea), San Clemente Island lotus (Acmispon dendroideus var. traskiae), and San Clemente Island larkspur (Delphinium variegatum ssp. kinkiense). The bird species and four plant species occur only on San Clemente Island, one of the Channel Islands off the southern coast of California. The best available scientific and commercial information indicates that the species’ statuses have improved and threats to the species have been eliminated or reduced to the point that the species no longer meet the definitions of either endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
