OK, on the book:

What Merker told me about the purpose of his book that it was meant to be an introduction to the natural history of L alterna as well as sort of a travel guide for new visitors to the Trans Pecos. I believe words to that effect are published in preface and/or foreword. He may be too modest to admit this, but it was also to showcase excellent photography throughout the book.

What he did with Terrell county is consistent with the handling every other county in his book. There is not single "exact locality" published in the entire book. Every single photograph is REPRESENTATIVE of animals found in that region, regardless if they are generic, or locality, or generic locality type.

It's my opinion that the book is fine, did not need any more editing, and suits it's purpose very nicely. I highly recommend Gerald's book.
-----
LOCALITY: Traceable lineage to WC snakes from the same locality.
I don't care how far apart they are (within reason) as long as the localities are stated, buyers can make up their own minds.

GENERIC: Lineage is not traceable to WC
