The pocketbook is found in the Mississippi River drainage, St. Lawrence drainage and southern drainages to Hudson Bay. It occurs west from eastern Manitoba south to nothern Oklahoma, east to eastern Tennessee and north to Nova Scotia.
In Michigan the pocketbook is found throughout the lower peninsula, and in the upper peninsula, from Marquette and Dickinson County to the east. Collection records do not show it in Alger, Schoolcraft and Chippewa counties, although it still may be in water bodies there.
