Range Description

This species is known from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Owing to taxonomic problems with this species, the range is not clearly delineated. It has also been introduced into Maryland and Virginia (Taylor et al. 2007). Fitzpatrick (2002) considers this species more restricted to eastern Louisiana, very southern Mississippi, and very southern Alabama. Recent surveys in Alabama have not found this species. Johnson and Johnson (2008) describe this species distribution as the flat coastal plain from Texas to Louisiana, but midway along the Texas flat coastal plain, individuals have features of both this species and P. texanus.
