Unfortunately, as indicated in the EIA document, due to the timing of the surveys we were unable to confirm the identification of the sample. Identification will occur this spring. There are six species of Ladies tresses (Spiranthes sp.) in New Brunswick; none of these are listed as species at risk provincially or federally. There would be no requirement to transplant samples, although avoidance will be explored if feasible.
If the results from the Spiranthes prove that it is indeed that plant, can the plant be successfully transplanted, or will it be anhiliated?
