It is found from Newfoundlnd and Labrador, into northern Quebec, through James Bay, west into the Northwest and the Yukon Territories and most of Alaska. Also south to the southern tip of California, eastward, including all states to the Atlantic coast and all of Florida. Northward through the maritime provinces to Nova Scotia.
