Species Notes

Sheffield et al. (2011) recorded this from Manitoba to British Columbia, the latter location based on Ivanochko (1979) who examined a specimen from Simon Fraser University that was presumably collected in Summerland, British Columbia. Unfortunately, the specimen was not labelled, so the presence of this species in British Columbia cannot be verified. Thus it was not recorded from the Province by Sheffield and Heron (2019).
