A.virginicus was first recorded in 1947 in Georgia in the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia near the Lake Bebsyr (Ochamchira (Очамчыра) region). The pathway of entry is not known. In the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia, the species is widespread in the natural communities, and in ruderal and disturbed land across the low-lying (up to 250 m) maritime part of the country (Колаковский, 1986) and is expanding its range in the Caucasus region. The most northern point of its spread is the region of Tuapse town (Туапсе) where in 1996 the population of this species was dominant in the area of a former vineyard on the marine terrace of the bank of the estuary (Зернов и др., 2000).
