Thanks Mary Sue,

What you say is though provoking. I've repeatedly heard the definition of "native" to describe the specific ecotypes from specific areas irrespective of the given species being widespread in a larger region. There could be slightly different genes between two morphs of a single species having evolved in different locales, and mild differences in climate and timing of rainfall over the course of the species evolution could result in unexpected consequences. Pure speculation, desperately trying to convince myself my hypothesis could hold any ground under scrutiny.

My hypothesis seems to only make sense here in Rogue River, so in other words I'm probably wrong. Unless we can find a wizard to blame for any discrepancies.
