In this provided by Patrick Donnelly and the Center for Biological Diversity, a fly and a beetle rest on Tiehm's buckwheat, a rare wildflower, in the Nevada desert on May 29, 2021. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Thursday, June 3, 2021, an extremely rare wildflower that grows only in Nevada's high desert where an Australian mining company wants to dig for lithium should be protected under the Endangered Species Act. The agency outlined its intention to propose listing Tiehm's buckwheat as a threatened or endangered species in a court-ordered, finding of its overdue review of a listing petition conservationists filed in 2019.
