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     As a result, critical habitat designations in areas where the Jennifer’s mondardella species is found will be rescinded.
