Wildlife Service published a proposed rule to delist the Gypsum Wild-Buckwheat

Woods note: Gypsum wild buckwheat has two populations in Eddy County. On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a proposed rule to delist the Gypsum Wild-Buckwheat as a threatened species throughout its range under the Endangered Species Act of 1973.

The Gypsum Wild-Buckwheat proposed listing rule can be found here: http://www.regulations.gov , entering FWS–R2–ES–2016–0119 in the Search box.
