It has made it to New Jersey.  There is a picture of one on the Wiki Wiki from a bulb of mine.

Dear Friends,
	Can anyone give a fairly definitive answer to the question : 
What is the North American distribution of the Narcissus Bulb Fly 

	It is obviously introduced from Europe and well established 
on the West Coast and Pacific Northwest of the US, but does it occur 
in Eastern US, Midwest or elsewhere?

	I don't recall ever seeing this pest (thankfully) and assume 
it cannot survive cold winters.

	Appreciate input.		Jim W.
