Siren intermedia, the Lesser Siren, ranges from the Coastal Plains of Virginia to Florida, then westward to southern Texas and northeastern Mexico. Populations extend northward in the Mississippi Valley to Illinois, Indiana, and southwestern Michigan. Geographic isolates occur in northern Indiana, southwest Michigan, northeastern North Carolina, and southeastern Virginia.(Petranka 1998) This range is occupied by three subspecies, they are S. i. intermedia, S. i. nettingi, and S. i. texana. All of these subspecies only vary slightly in physical characteristics such as length and color (Conant and Collins, 1998).
