I totally agree with your observations and writings regarding the subspecies in triangulum. How do you feel about the distribution of L. t. elapsoides and L. t. triangulum? The coastal plains milks appear to be intermediates but what about the areas in KY and TN where elapsoides are known along with triangulum? I have not observed L.t.e. in KY myself, and probably never will, but the university I attended had several in the collection (preserved) from various eastern KY counties. I did not observe any collected animals that appeared to be intermediate. Please keep in mind that I'm basing this on my observations of a limited collection. I'd really like to know what kind of observations others have made regarding the overlap in the south eastern US.
If it weren't for the coastal plains it would be very easy to convince me that L.t.e. should be a different species.
