"my experience with this genus indicates a vague north/south transitional zone in east/central Texas (beginning just west of Houston) where forms of emarginata and gigas seem to merge. One could argue that these forms are either a hybrid of the two species or that gigas is just a subspecies." (Dan Heffern, pers.comm. to =v=, 31.v.2014)
