Wyoming Natural Diversity Database

Range overlays produce a list of taxa that may occur in a defined area, based on our understanding of a species' range within Wyoming. The list includes the current number of documented observations and the most recent date of observation within the defined area. Requests for range overlays are filled free of charge.
