Quino Addition

Quino checkerspot butterfly (Quino) is a federally endangered butterfly species native to Southern California. Quino was not included as a Covered Species in the Multiple Species Conservation Program’s (MSCP) County Subarea Plan (South County Plan) because not enough was known about local Quino populations at the time of plan adoption.

The County is preparing a Quino Addition to add Quino to the list of species covered by the South County Plan. The Quino Addition amendment package will include conservation policies, an adaptive management and monitoring strategy, and a funding plan.
