An Asian giant hornet has been found in Snohomish County, Wash., south of where it was previously detected. It is apparently a separate introduction of the dangerous wasp to the U.S., state and federal officials said Wednesday.

A person reported finding the dead hornet near Marysville, about 35 miles north of Seattle, to the state Department of Agriculture on June 4. The department picked up the dried-out, male specimen on June 8.
