NOVA SCOTIA: Halifax County: Halifax, 9 September 1991, E. Georgeson, NSNR; Halifax, 12 August 2001, C.G. Majka, 4 specimens, CGMC; Pt. Pleasant Park, 29 July 2001 & 24 August 2002, C.G. Majka, CGMC.

Newly recorded from Nova Scotia from a seemingly isolated population in Halifax: it has not otherwise been found in the Maritime Provinces. Broadly distributed in eastern and central North America from the Dakotas south to Texas and Florida and north to southern Maine ( Gordon 1976); in Canada from Saskatchewan to Québec ( McNamara 1991).
