  These taxa range between western Liaoning Province (and three counties
in that area, of which Beipiao County is one) and Ningcheng County in Nei
Monggol Zizhiqu (Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region), in northeastern
China. There are numerus "localities" (a restricted geographic area, about
a kilometer square, among them including Daohugou, Sihetun, Jianshangou,
etc.) and sublocalities. The political regions, such as County, Province,
Autonomous Region, etc., are different from localities.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
