A large area of overlap/integrades in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and North Carolina where species will be bumped to genus. Much of this area is the "Piedmont" with above the fall line being intergrades and below the fall line being "Florida Bass" M. salmoides

It is possible that "Florida Bass" M. salmoides has been introduced any areas across the world but those are going to be continue to be considered "Largemouth Bass" M. nigricans due to no data to base that from and the long standing of Largemouth Bass being the species that has been spread world wide.

@riverrat09 There's an area in northeast North Carolina that was kept as salmoides by the taxon split that's in the same drainages that have been changed to nigricans in Virginia. Given that they weren't shown as either in the map provided in the paper I think they should be switched to nigricans

I would agree with you. At this point though it would have to be done through ID's to those observations.
