Information Bulletin #2 (Fifth Amendment)
February 1, 2012

SUBJECT: Roster of Indiana Animals, Insects, and Plants that Are Extirpated, Endangered, Threatened, or Rare (also described as Special Concern).

The initial roster was published February 1, 1992 (15 IR 848); republished April 1, 1992 (15 IR 1312); and subsequently amended to include additional species and published on February 1, 2005 (28 IR 1581).
Since 2005, revisions have been made to several of the endangered species lists in this document. The term "special concern" replaces the references to "rare" as it relates to wild animals and is expanded to include species in a legal status transition. Federal funding is available for species that are endangered or of special concern, which also supports the modification of the definition of species of "special concern". The classification of a wild animal as "extirpated" is problematic, and the list of "extirpated" mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, crustaceans, mollusks, and fish is removed. The classification "extirpated" implies that a species has no legal status in Indiana, just because it is no longer found in Indiana. Determining that a species is actually extirpated can be extremely difficult for cryptic species, such as mussels, some turtles, some birds, and others. Additionally, animals are mobile and may attempt to recolonize Indiana, making an accurate list very difficult to maintain.
In the fourth amendment of this document (posted at 20070815-IR-312070469NRA on August 15, 2007), "rare", "threatened", and "extirpated" classifications for insect species were retained. Classification definitions were added for vascular plant species. In this document, species are reclassified and scientific names are modified.

Following is a roster of animals, insects, and plants considered in Indiana by the Department of Natural Resources to be extirpated, endangered, threatened, or rare (also described as special concern). The roster is intended to help identify these animals and plants, and the hope is that a better understanding of the fragility of these species will promote intelligent land use decisions. This roster may also be cross-referenced in rules and other documents directed to land use management.
Inclusion of an animal or plant on the roster is determined based on the best current information available. Adjustments to the listing will be required as additional data becomes available to the department and as the conditions of species change. For this reason, adjustments will be needed periodically to this roster, and those adjustments will be set forth in later editions of the roster.
Additional information concerning particular species included on the roster may be obtained from the Department of Natural Resources, Division of Fish and Wildlife and Division of Nature Preserves.

This section sets forth the classifications used in Indiana for wild animals, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, mollusks, and crustaceans. The classifications used for insects and plants are set forth in Section IV(G) and Section V respectively.
"Endangered" means any animal species or subspecies whose prospects for survival or recruitment within the state are in immediate jeopardy and are in danger of disappearing from the state. This includes all species classified as endangered by the federal government that occur in Indiana.
"Special Concern" means an animal species requiring monitoring because of known or suspected vulnerability, limited abundance, or distribution in Indiana or a change in legal status or required habitat of the species of animal has occurred.

2. Endangered: An insect species is considered state endangered if its prospects for survival or recruitment within Indiana are in immediate jeopardy, and is in danger of disappearing from the state, where any of the following three conditions occur: (a) A species which may occur in Indiana is classified as endangered by the federal government. (b) A species is biologically dependent on a threatened or endangered plant species. (c) A species is known from fewer than five sites in Indiana.
An insect is also considered endangered if the insect is listed as extirpated but is later rediscovered in Indiana, whether the population is endemic or believed to be recently adventive. The discovery of any life stage of an extirpated or endangered species is fiduciary evidence that a population exists.
An endangered species of insect does not include any of the following: (a) A species that is not known as a population in Indiana but which ranges into the state from Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, or Kentucky. (b) A nonregulated adventive species. (c) A species regulated under IC 14-24 and 312 IAC 18-3 (including a species used for biological control).
