Status:

A. remigis and A. remigoides are both expected to occur in the state and are not externally separable. A. remigoides was described from specimens taken mostly from the mountains of c. PA to n. GA. No one has made an attempt to delineate the distribution of either species and so they could both be widespread or separated geographically or based on habitat. (M. Pintar, pers. comm.)

There are 259 records in the project database.
