DISTRIBUTION in North Carolina: Accidental or casual; three county records (Swain, Haywood, and Macon), in the mountains.
ABUNDANCE in North Carolina: This species breeds in the midwestern states, and is regular probably east to eastern or central Tennessee and perhaps in Georgia. The NC records, and a record for Oconee County, SC, are probably of migrants. It would be expected to occur as a migrant or vagrant at times in the extreme southwestern counties.
FLIGHT PERIOD in North Carolina: Glassberg (1999) states: "2 broods, generally June/July - Aug; Aug - Oct, overwintering as adults and flying April - May". The only date we have is one seen on July 6, 2005.
