The American Burying Beetle (Nicrophorus americanus) is currently Federally listed as Endangered but was down-listed to Threatened in 2020. The North American beetle has become critically endangered due to a dramatic habitat loss, alteration, or degradation, and the lack of carrion in their environments. Listed since 1989, they now exist in less than 10% of their historic range.
