Coordinator notes: If I look at this closely, it resembles regularis in the clarity of the oval loops, the much darker terminal line than vermiculalis and the overall white/darker contrast. However, regularis is known to get to at least the Texas border but I do not know if it gets further west. Interesting choices to make from a photo!
