Non-native, probably non-established species from Europe that has been found only a few times on the East Coast, only once in Maryland. That record was an adult female found on March 8, 1978 by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research while studying the overwintering biology of Culex pipiens and St. Louis Encephalitis Virus at Fort McHenry National Monument in Baltimore. The precise location is given as "resting on a wall inside 'Outer Battery Bomb Proof No. 2'... resting upon the north wall of the bomb proof approximately 1m above the floor and 2m east of the stairs." (J. Emm, pers. comm.)
