Status:

BugGuide (2015): "Has declined severely at the northern margin of its range, where now absent from or at best very rare at many historical localities, but still routinely found in its core range to the south as evidenced by the many BugGuide images. Despite its name this species is not our most widespread species, as it is now rarely encountered in the northern portion of its historical range."

There are 33 records in the project database.
