Schedule
List of CITES Species for the Purposes of the

Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
This is a list of taxa included on Appendix I, II and III of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in accordance with the provisions of Articles XV and XVI of the CITES. The list does not include any other species.
The ‘Taxon’ column of the list includes the scientific name of the listed taxa. The structure of the list is described in more detail below.
The ‘Common Name’ column of the list is included for information only and the scientific name determines if a species is included on the list.
The ‘Appendix’ column of the list identifies the Appendix of CITES that the taxa is included. The notation “p.e.” (possibly extinct) is included for certain species.
The ‘Notation’ column of the list describes the specimens belonging to that species that are included in that entry. In regards to Appendix III species the country listed in the notation column indicates the country for which the species is listed. If there is no entry in the “Notation” column then the definition of a specimen for that particular species is taken to be a specimen that is either that species and/or anything derived from that species.
The ‘First Listed’ column identifies the date on which a taxon was first listed on the CITES Appendices. The date of first listing is retained if a species is transferred from one appendix to another or if a listed species is subsequently included with other species in the listing of a taxon above the species level. This list includes such species separately. The date of a subsequent listing in the CITES Appendices is used only if a species is entirely deleted from the appendices and is subsequently reincluded after an intervening period of time.
The list is organised as follows:
