(1) The review of classification of the pale-bellied frost lichen (Physconia subpallida) was not completed. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) decided that a fully updated status report is required to assess the status of this wildlife species. The assessments of American bumble bee (Bombus pennsylvanicus), red-tailed leafhopper (Aflexia rubranura) Prairie population, and smoker’s lung lichen (Lobaria retigera) were deferred. These wildlife species will be re-considered by COSEWIC at a later meeting.
