* As a general rule (stated in the Records Committee bylaws), species which average under 2 sightings per year over a ten year period are on the Review List.  Changes are made when a proposal by a member of the Records  Committee to either add or delete a species. is accepted by committee vote. This could follows the "general rule" as stated above or may not if judged by the committee to be a special case.

**  During a general review of  the Utah checklist, these two species were deleted from the state checklist because  of insufficient documentation.
