Status:

There is some disagreement about the proper naming of this species and invasion history in the US. However, it is certainly non-native on the East Coast and to our knowledge this is the farthest up the Bay it has been reported and the first Maryland record. (R. Aguilar/SERC).

There are 5 records in the project database.
