ABA Area Total Ticks vs ABA Area
I have 676 Life for ABA Area Total Ticks which I cannot see the species detail of, but only 624 Life for ABA Area which I can see the species detail of. What is the difference between the two Life counts and what would account for the difference of 52?

ABA Area Total ticks is the sum of all your US State, Canadian Provinces and Territories, DC and St. Pierre and Miquelon and any other subnational political division of the ABA area I am missing. So if you had seen the same species in two states it counts once on your ABA area life list but as two ABA area Ticks.
