Title: Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removal of the Braken Bat Cave Meshweaver From the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife 

FWS will make a final determination on the proposal to remove the Braken Bat Cave meshweaver (Cicurina venii), an arachnid, from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. The best available scientific and commercial information indicates that Braken Bat Cave meshweaver is not a discrete taxonomic entity and does not meet the definition of a species as defined by the Act. However, because the Braken Bat Cave meshweaver has been synonymized under the Madla Cave meshweaver (Cicurina madla), the status of the Braken Bat Cave meshweaver, and thus its protections under the Act, would remain the same because the Madla Cave meshweaver is listed as endangered under the Act. The Braken Bat Cave meshweaver is found in Texas.
