Pseudomops septentrionalis is reported from seven counties in Mississippi dating back to 1987. These records suggest a gradual range extension hypothesis for this species rather than the accidental human transport hypothesis proposed to explain an apparently isolated population in Auburn, AL. Panchlora nivea is reported from four counties in Mississippi, including two early records considered to be adventive introductions with bananas. Plectoptera picta is reported from Alabama for the first time.
