New York State Distribution [-]
The known range includes the Albany Pine Bush (last record apparently 1979), as well as Long Island and Orange County (both in the 1990s). This species could turn up in other southeastern New York counties with substantial scrub oak.

Global Distribution [-]
The Barrens Itame occurs in very few inland pine barrens in Maine, New Hampshire, western Massachusetts, New York, and the Poconos region of Pennsylvania. It is more widespread in the Cape Cod and Islands region of Massachusetts and probably on Long Island, New York. The species is fairly ubiquitous in the pine barrens portion of Ocean, Burlington, and northern Atlantic Counties of New Jersey, with an isolated population in Salem County, New Jersey. A known population at Goshen, Virginia may indicate that the species has a wider Appalachian range.
