Confirmed Spotted Lanternfly Locations

Map of New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Illinois, and North Carolina. Counties infested with spotted lanternfly shown in blue. A red line encircles those counties quarantined by New York. A purple dot marks counties where spotted lanternfly has been found, but is not established.

This map is provided so the distribution of the Spotted Lanternfly can be viewed on a regional basis. The county records are based on information supplied to us by individual states’ regulatory agencies.  This map is for informational purposes only. Please contact state officials directly when making policy decisions. This is a county-based map so although the map shows entire counties shaded, the actual infestation may only encompass a small portion of that county.

Every effort is made to keep this map up-to-date. If you have any questions regarding the map and new populations, please contact Brian Eshenaur at For any other questions or concerns regarding the Spotted Lanternfly, you are welcome to write to
