Population/Occurrence Delineation

Use Class: Not applicable
Minimum Criteria for an Occurrence: Habitats of this wide ranging species vary enormously in different parts of the range. Subspecies CORPUSCULA would appear to fit well the riparian Specs Group as would some other western populations. The Specs for beach and seashore taxa can be applied to many populations along both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Some other populations would best fit the Specs for generalized sand inhabiting taxa. See Freitag (1999) for a first approximation and regional literature such as Leonard and Bell (1999) or Knisely and Schultz (1997) for further guidance. Also check the habitats comments fields to see if there is useful information for a subspecies.
Separation Justification: This polytypic subspecies cannot readily be assigned to any particular Specs Group nor can useful range wide Specs for the species or even some of the subspecies be suggested.
