Yukon and northwestern Saskatchewan south to southwest Alberta and Washington (McGuffin 1987). The distribution of this species is rather enigmatic - it is apparently very rare in the boreal region between the southern mountain and prairie region and the Yukon and extreme northwestern Saskatchewan. The Milliken Lake, SK record in McGuffin (1987) is erroneously shown on the map in northwestern AB.
