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
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.
