New York State Distribution [-]
Transverse lady beetle was once considered common throughout the state. It was last found prior to the 1980s, despite efforts by a citizen science project known as The Lost Ladybug Project that began in 2000 (Cornell University 2015).

Global Distribution [-]
At one time, this species was common throughout a large portion of North America extending from Labrador to Alaska and south to California. The current range extends from western Canada and western United States into Mexico. It is also found in Europe, Asia (except China,) and Central America. It is absent from the eastern portion of North America with the exception of two recent records from Canada: a 2012 record from Quebec and another from Labrador (Cornell University 2015).
