Distribution. AL, DC, GA, MD, MS, NC, PA, SC, TN, VA ( Stark & Baumann 2006). Mississippipopulations have been reported in Amite, Clarke, Franklin, Lauderdale and Tishomingo counties ( Stark 1979; Alford 1998; Stark & Lacey 2005) and in this paper new records are given for Kemper County and Prentiss County. The base distribution lies along the Alabama line from Tishomingo Co. to Clarke Co. with an apparent small disjunct population in the Homochitto National Forest of southwest Mississippi ( Fig. 3 View Fig ); only three specimens have been taken from the disjunct area.

In lateral aspect, apex slightly inflated to a terminal acute tip; lower limb apex not visible in dorsal aspect but in lateral aspect it bends sharply ventrad near dorsal limb tip (Fig. 5), and lower limb slightlywider in dorsalaspect than upper limb from base to beyond midlength (Fig. 4).
