Pigeon Check Stamped


Named by Patricia Holden and revised by Bennie Keel, all from work in western North Carolina. This series has an iridescent sheen, and larger tetrapods than the similar, and presumably later, Connestee series. Presumably named after the Pigeon River. Probably not a name that is very useful for Georgia.
