Recovery Strategy for the Maritime Ringlet (Coenonympha nipisiquit) in Canada

The Maritime Ringlet (Coenonympha nipisiquit) is a small (wing span 32–36 mm) tan to orange brown–coloured butterfly that is one of only two butterflies in Canada with a life cycle entirely limited to a salt marsh habitat. It is listed as Endangered under Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act since 2003.

In Appendix A, minor changes were made to the coordinates of the polygon containing critical habitat for Forillon National Park and to the associated map.

Consultation period: 2011-06-29 to 2011-08-28
