Arizona eryngo (Eryngium sparganophyllum) proposed for federal listing under the Endangered Species Act

The FWS is proposing to list the Arizona eryngo (Eryngium sparganophyllum), a wetland plant, as endangered under the Endangered Species Act, and designate 13 acres of critical habitat at 3 locations: east of Tucson (La Cebadilla and Agua Caliente Regional Park) and east of Sierra Vista (Lewis Springs).  We seek public input to consider for the decision.
