What are the pink markings on this map page mean?

Distribution of that species based on some other source of information, not iNaturalist.

Thank you!

I should add that the colored range maps (usually pink) are not always very accurate due to old information, the scale of the original map it is derived from, or how the original was drawn.

That’s helpful. Thanks!
