What about Pinguicula ionantha which is not listed on CITES but is protected by the ESA?
    Yes, I would like to understand the laws regarding Appendix II species as well. And what about transporting these species across state lines?

    I forgot to add that Dionaea muscipula is on appendix II as well.

    If you are importing plants, you do need CITES export permit issued by the exporting country (in addition to phytosanitary certificate). But you don't need the paid CITES import permit (PPQ621) unless you are doing the import for business. I'm not completely sure about the requirement of PPQ621 with App. 1 (I'm guessing that you don't need it).

    For the small lot of seeds, app 2 seeds are cites exempt, so no need to have CITES import or export permit (and no need to phytosanitary certificate). App 1 seeds are not exempt, so I'm guessing you need export permit (but no need for phytosanitary). This is my understanding from communicating with an APHIS person.

    Ah that is an interesting note, that PPQ621 is meant for business use. A lot of people seem to think it's necessary for all CITES importation (and I'm not even sure it's required for all appendix II species either.)

    I appreciate the info for CITES Appendix II, naoki. I do believe you are required to have special permitting for importing any Appendix I plants but I don't claim to be certain. Maybe this is just a commercial requirement? And nimbulan, I wasn't aware that flytraps were on Appendix II. This would seem to indicate that there are no restrictions for interstate transport in the US for this group of plants.

    O.k., it has finally sunk in that there is a lot more info on this thread than just that in the last few weeks. I am going to read the whole thing and see what I can understand from it all. Perhaps we can summarize what has been stated already. I doubt the laws have changed much since the thread began.

    I think most of the information is regarding how to apply for the permits, how long it takes, and who you have to talk to if there's problems. I haven't been able to find any concrete information here or elsewhere about the necessity of a CITES import permit for various plants.
