New York State Distribution [-]
This species has only been reported from Long Island.

Global Distribution [-]
This species occurs within 20 miles of coast in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and on Long Island, New York, then widely from southern New Jersey through much of Georgia and west to east Texas. It is unclear how far inland this species occurs, but it seems to occur regularly in northern Georgia and the Raleigh, North Carolina, area but not into the Appalachian region. It is probably fairly general on the coastal plain and south of Virginia also on the piedmont.
