MAP 2.-RANGE OF THE NORTH AMERICAN RACCOONS IN CANADA

 

This map is founded chiefly on papers by Messrs. D. G. Elliot, V. Bailey, R. MacFarlane, W. H. Osgood, C. Hart Merriam, John Richardson, R. Kennicott, L. Adams, J. Rowley, J. A. Allen, G. S. Miller, S. F. Baird, E. A. Mearns, and E. T. Setou.

In the north and east the lines are tolerably accurate, but in the Rocky Mountain and Pacific Coast regions, must be modified by future work. Two species of Raccoon are recognized:

Procyon lotor (Linnaeus), with its 2 races, Procyon psora Grey, with its 2 races.
