A Zale Moth
Zale largera (Smith, 1908)
Insects

New York State Distribution [-]
Zale largera is known from only one location in the state in Clinton County. Although intensive inventory efforts to document new locations are lacking, its range is probably very limited in New York considering there is only one known occurrence and because the food plant, jack pine, is uncommon in the state. Jack pine primarily occurs in sandstone barrens in Clinton County and is restricted to northern New York as a native tree (New York Flora Atlas 2009).

Global Distribution [-]
Distribution data for the U.S. and Canadian provinces is known to be incomplete or has not been reviewed by NatureServe for this taxon.
