The United States may propose amendments to the CITES Appendices for consideration at the sixteenth regular meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CITES (CoP16), tentatively scheduled to be held in Thailand, March 3–15, 2013.

With the published notice, USFWS describes proposed amendments to the CITES Appendices (species proposals) that the United States might submit for consideration at CoP16 and invites your comments and information on these proposals.

The United States as yet is still undecided on whether to submit proposals for CoP16 for the following taxa. In some cases, they have not completed consultations with relevant range countries and in others they expect meetings to occur in the immediate future, at which participants will generate important recommendations, trade analyses, or biological information on the taxon in question.

Reptile Changes Under Consideration;

11. Tokay gecko (Gekko gecko) — Inclusion in Appendix II
12. Burmese starred tortoise (Geochelone platynota) — Transfer from Appendix II to Appendix I
13. Crowned river turtle (Hardella thurjii) — Inclusion in Appendix II
14. Burmese peacock softshell turtle (Nilssonia formosa) — Inclusion in Appendix II
15. Roti Island snake-necked turtle (Chelodina mccordi) —Transfer from Appendix II to Appendix I
16. Yellow-margined box turtle (Cuora flavomarginata) — Transfer from Appendix IIto Appendix I
17. McCord’s box turtle (Cuora mccordi) — Transfer from Appendix II to Appendix I
18. Chinese three-striped box turtle (Cuora trifasciata) — Transfer from Appendix II toAppendix I
19. Big-headed turtle (Platysternon megacephalum) — Transfer from Appendix II toAppendix I
20. Painted terrapin (Batagur borneoensis) — Transfer from Appendix II to Appendix I
21. Burmese roofed turtle (Batagur trivittata) —Transfer from Appendix II to Appendix I
22. Map turtles (Graptemys spp.) — Inclusion in Appendix II and three species in Appendix I
23. Blanding’s turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) — Inclusion in Appendix I or Appendix II
24. Spotted turtle (Clemmys guttata) — Inclusion in Appendix I or Appendix II
25. Alligator snapping turtle (Macrochelys temminckii) — Inclusion in Appendix II
26. Diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys terrapin) — Inclusion in Appendix II
