(c) “fa.” is used to denote forma.
5. The abbreviation “p.e.” is used to denote species that are possibly extinct.
6. An asterisk (*) placed against the name of a species or higher taxon

indicates that one or more geographically separate populations, subspecies
or species of that species or taxon are included in the First Schedule and are
excluded from the Second Schedule.
