New York State Distribution [-]
Extant populations of this species occur in several different major watersheds in New York including the Delaware, Lake Champlain, Lake Erie, Southwestern Lake Ontario, and Upper Hudson. It is likely that the species also occurs in the Susquehanna drainage; however, its presence in the St. Lawrence drainage is less certain. Counties of occurrence include Erie, Wyoming and Livingston in western New York; Ulster, Sullivan and Greene in the Catskills region; and Essex and Warren in the eastern Adirondacks.

The Appalachian tiger beetle is a species of the eastern United States and southeastern Canada. The species range extends from the Gaspe region of Quebec south through western Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, northeastern Ohio, Pennsylvania and south along the Appalachian mountains to northern Georgia. Old records indicate that the range formerly extended west into Indiana and Illinois (Pearson et al. 2006, Leonard and Bell 1999).
