Please help and correct me if I'm wrong :
No species is federally protected (source http://ecos.fws.gov/servlet/TESSWebpageVipListed?code=V&listings=0#C)
Three species are legal for commercial collection in Nevada(platyrhinos, douglassi, hernandezi)
One is legal for commercial collection in Texas(modestum)
State laws vary but most allow up to four to be collected with a hunting license.
California protects mcalli and coronatum ( these are the only two species that require permits)
Oklahoma and Texas protect cornutm in those states. Bag limits vary in other states.
