State Rarity Rank:
Global Rarity Rank:
Did you know?
This species may be negatively impacted by biocide spraying for other insects, such as mosquitos, blackflies, and potentially, gypsy moths.
|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.
The short-term trends indicate that the population is stable or slightly declining (a decline of 10% to 30%).
The long-term trends indicate that the population is stable or has undergone a moderate decline (25% to 50%).
