Status:

There has been long-standing confusion over the identity of this species and the closely related Sepsis violacea Meigen. The latter does not occur in North America, so presumably all records of it in North America refer to Sepsis punctum (Fabricius). (BugGuide)

There are 13 records in the project database.
