There seems to be issues with the geographic overlap of the subspecies -- both Martes caurina ssp. caurina and Martes caurina ssp. sierrae are shown in the southern Sierra Nevadas.

I did not create atlases for the Pacific marten subspecies - I just moved them from Martens americana, and this just moved the IDs and observations for them with it. Do you think atlases and/or range maps would resolve the issue? Know any cited literature on the topic?
