According to that study, the eastern mud turtle just barely enters the state even though it is a common turtle to the south.
So it is not actually endangered, but rather uncommonly found because it's natural range just makes it into that state.
It would be like saying that the Mississippi mud turtle, Kinosternon subrubrum hippocrepis, is the most 'endangered' turtle in Florida because it has only been found in one county in the absolute most western part of the panhandle. But it is a very common and familiar turtle just a bit further west. So it would really be misleading to list it as 'endangered'.
