There are 9 species, and possibly a tenth. Some of these occur in a very
limited range, and in many cases the ranges do not overlap. I haven't
been able to pin down the exact range of stonei, but what little info
I've found seems to indicate northeast Georgia and southern South
Carolina in an area only about 180 miles wide.
