Tentative placement of Evarcha hoyi images in BugGuide is based on the ranges given by Marusik and Logunov(1). It is possible they can not be identified from habitus images alone.[jb]


As provided by Marusik and Logunov(1):
Canada: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland
United States: Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin.

Specimen records from Utah and Montana are regarded as "possibly mislabled[sic]"(1), and therefore omitted from this list.
Please see Jay Barnes' comment here regarding the potential for confusion of this species with the Palearctic E. falcata.
