Epuraea horni Crotch, 1874 

Carleton Co.: Belleville, Meduxnekeeg Valley Nature Preserve, 46.1888°N, 67.6762°W, 27.VIII.2007, R. P. Webster, upper river margin, on flowers of Daucus  sp., (1, RWC)GoogleMaps  ; York Co.: Charters Settlement , 45.8395°N, 66.7391°W, 19.VI.2004, R.P.

Epuraea horni  has been recorded in Canada from Ontario and Québec ( McNamara 1991), and in the United States from Pennsylvania south to North Carolina and west to Illinois ( Parsons 1943). No bionomical information is available for this species, but we suspect it to be mycetophagous on various fungal substrata in a similar manner as its close relative E. helvola  .
