    Determiner: Agent object
    Staff Notes:
    Not flagged for specimen examination. By default we accept donor specimen determinations (after synonymization to our taxonomy). If georeferenced to TX this record has been considered in spatial context with other occurrences of this species and accepted as correct.
    Measured by road, State Hwy 361 from the end of the mainland rather than center of town because description clearly says off of road between Aransas Pass and Port Aransas. If start from the center, the locality would not be outside the extent of Aransas
    Should be Nueces County
