Global Range: (200,000-2,500,000 square km (about 80,000-1,000,000 square miles)) This species was formerly found from Connecticut, southeastern New York, and northern New Jersey westward through Pennsylvania, northern Delaware, and Ohio to southern Michigan, the Virginias, western North Carolina, and northeastern Kentucky. This species has the same foodplant as Papaipema duplicata, and their ranges overlapped broadly, but P. astuta seems to be more of a Northeastern and Midwestern species and less of an Appalachian species although more thorough collecting in the mountains might show otherwise. More recently, 1990s and since, this separation may have increased as P. astuta seems to have persisted better in peripheral areas.
