Number of Occurrences
Note: For many non-migratory species, occurrences are roughly equivalent to populations.
Estimated Number of Occurrences: 81 to >300
Comments: Many thousands of populations are extant rangewide. Nebraska: common, but rarer than formerly due to land use changes; Kansas: probably thousands of populations, scattered in tallgrass and mixed-grass prairies across the eastern two-thirds of the state; Missouri: common; Arkansas: reported from almost every county; Georgia: very common; Mississippi: occurs commonly over a large area, 47 counties; New York: probably about 100 populations; Vermont: known only from several collections from the late 1800's and early 1900's, all made within two counties; Indiana: common, occurs throughout the state, especially in the northern portion; Illinois: very common, frequently encountered in prairie areas, especially in sand prairies; Michigan: relatively common throughout southern Lower Michigan, ranges through northern Lower Michigan, frequent in prairies, old fields, prairie remnants, roadsides, along railroads, etc.; Ontario: about 100 populations; Kentucky: infrequent but not tracked; Texas: common, not tracked; New Hampshire: listed endangered, known only from seven historical occurrences (Natural Heritage Programs).
