State Coordinators’ Reports

Included in every newsletter are reports on species occurrences in the southern United States. We encourage any and all members to report occurrences of even common species in our area. Listed below are state coordinators for each state in our area. Most of the records you send in will be included in the state reports, but records are open to editing by the respective state coordinator. Any unusual reports (exceptional species, state records, etc.) will require a good photograph or a specimen for confirmation.
