New York State Distribution [-]
In New York, at the northern tip of its range, there are at least five older records for N. integricollis in Suffolk county (Donnelly 1999), and two extant locations in Suffolk county (1995 and 2005) (New York Natural Heritage Program 2010). The species appears to be restricted to Long Island with a single documentation in Suffolk county during the increased statewide survey effort for odonates during the New York Dragonfly and Damselfly Survey.

Global Distribution [-]
The species‘ known range includes Texas and Oklahoma eastward across the southern United States, then northward along the Atlantic coast to New Hampshire (Donnelly 2004b, Abbott 2010).
