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.
Used combination of locality description and online map to pinpoint general area Barracuda Cove would be at. Extent covers entire area of Laguna Madre, with SH 100 as N boundary and Brazos Island as S boundary.
Unable to find exact location of cove on maps. Description locates it as \"N of Brazos Island\" and \"within Laguna Madre complex\". Online site shows it to be S of SH 100: http://www.spadre.com/surfmap.htm.
