Neoconocephalus lyristes

distribution map for Conocephalus allardi
Dots show county records; shaded area shows likely general distribution.
County-level distribution map produced in 2003 from records in a database available on this site.

The record from Giles County, Virginia is from Tim Forrest whose students at Mountain Lake Biological Station found a population along the New River in July 2019. No shading is added between it and the already known populations. It might be added that the coneheads of Ohio are well enough known to make it likely that its populations in four counties in southern Ohio are isolated from those farther north-TJW.

In email, Wil Hershberger reported the occurrence of N. lyristes in Adams County, Ohio, during August 2011.
