State Ranking Justification [-]
The rank is based on limited inventory, but also on the limited availability of potential habitat in most of the State. Additional populations may be found in the Adirondacks. The species has been reported from Long Island, Albany, the Shawangunks, and the Adirondacks and it is apparently not common on Long Island and has apparently become rare at Albany.
