Distribution

Specimen and observational data presented here expand the known distribution of M. sculpturalis  to every state east of the Mississippi River and several western states including Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, and Texas (Fig. 2). Hinojosa-Díaz et al. (2005) used niche modeling to predict the expansion of the range in the United States, and current data continue to support that model (e.g., Hinojosa-Diaz 2008). While specimen records had previously been reported from Tennessee in the literature ( Mangum and Sumner 2003), the records presented were in the far eastern portion of the state. Museum records now extend the distribution west within the state and include Rudbeckia  sp. ( Asteraceae  / Compositae  ) as a new floral host from specimen data presented here. Record of M. sculpturalis  from Rhode Island was anecdotally mentioned in Maier (2005) but never confirmed with collected specimens. The first record of M. sculpturalis  west of the Mississippi River dates to 2004 (♀, St. Louis, MO) and is reported here for the first time. An examination of collections from Oklahoma did not yield any records in that state, in spite of records nearby in Arkansas, Missouri, and Texas. Records presented here and in other manuscripts show clear geographic expansion over time (Fig. 3), but it appears that the formal documentation of records lags behind the actual expansion.
