Notes

Harris (1983) did not record this species within the nearby San Rafael Swell, but it is reported for both the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area ( Hill and Ayers 2009), and Capitol Reef National Park ( Fertig 2009). Though common throughout North America ( Brooks and Clemants 2000), it is seemingly uncommon in the vicinity of MDRS; this species was only encountered on one low dune directly northeast of the station.
