Final Rule to Remove Siderastrea glynni from the Federal List of Threatened and Endangered Species


Endangered Species Act
Action Status
Final Rule
Affected Species
Siderastrea glynni coral


We, NOAA Fisheries, are issuing a final rule to remove a coral, Siderastrea glynni, from the Federal List of Threatened and Endangered Species. Recently obtained genetic and morphological information demonstrates that S. glynni does not meet the statutory definition of a species, and therefore does not qualify for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Following public comment and peer review of the proposed rule and supporting scientific information, this final rule implements the changes to the listing for S. glynni.
