I made this map over a year ago and wanted to make more adjustments to it. I planned on separating the Florida species onto a separate bigger map and was searching for more range info from reliable sources as I know in it's current state it does not fully reflect the range of some species but some things happened that caused me to lose my focus on it. Returning to it now feels like starting over, I'm having trouble focusing on it and there are other ones I'd like to start. Although it still needs some work it's helpful in quickly getting a general idea of where the different species are and I thought it might do more good here rather than just keeping it on my PC for my own personal use. If anyone wants to point me in the direction of any reliable and citeable sources for expanded range info please let me know in the comments.

Data points may not reflect full range of species, any errors are likely my own.

Data points interpreted from Dondale & Redner, 1990(1), , Wallace, H. K., 1942(2) and McCrone, 1963(3) (I need to revisit these to make sure I'm not missing any references in my notes.)
