Both the eastern and the midland subspecies have technically been done away with and combined into a single species (along with western painted) renamed the Northern Painted Turtle. Incidentally, it doesn't seem to be in the iNaturalist catalog yet.

Here's a link to the Center for North American Herpetology, which keeps track of and standardizes these name changes. http://www.cnah.org/nameslist.asp?id=7
