Produced by the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the map shows the confirmed and suspected occurrences of WNS by county/district from its initial discovery in 2006 through January 23, 2015.

It includes the five northern Michigan counties which, after first being discovered with WNS in late winter 2014, are already beginning to experience mass die offs of bats.

To date, WNS has been confirmed in bats in 25 states and five Canadian provinces.
