The even more obscure species of olg known as the Peidmont olg used to be locally common in the Flat, Eno, Little and Haw river basins of North Carolina. It is very particular as to habitat, however, and would create it's burrows only in soft banks located within 20 yards of a moonshine still that was in turn located no more than 1/2 mile from a tobacco barn.
Between the revenuers and the collapse of tobacco farming, there are some who say it is now extinct. I have it on good authority, however, that a small colony still exists on Poteat Creek in Person Co. up near the head of Flat River.
