I can refer you to a few resources. One that I often use is the USDA-ARS Pecan Breeding Station. I can drop off nuts at their site and they are really identifying pecan varieties. See contact info below. Another source is:

This site lists pecan varieties in alphabetical order with pictures and details about each variety.
