New Mint Species Loses Endangered Status

WASHINGTON (CN) - The US Fish and Wildlife Service changed the Endangered Species Act listing status of the willowy mondardella - a member of the mint family - after determining that it is composed of two separate species.

The newly recognized species, commonly called Jennifer's mondardella, will not share the endangered status retained by its willowy sister.

As a result, critical habitat designations in areas where the Jennifer's mondardella species is found will be rescinded.
