Glischrochilus fasciatus  has been recorded in Canada from British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island ( McNamara 1991; Majka and Cline 2006) and in the United States from Maine south to Florida, west through Missouri, Kansas, and Iowa to Oregon; also in New Mexico ( Parsons 1943; Chandler 2001). The species is common on fungi, flowers, decaying or ripe fruit ( Downie and Arnett 1996) and is associated with oak wilt fungus mats ( Cease and Juzwik 2001). Price and Young (2006) found it associated with oak ( Quercus  sp.), poplar ( Populus  sp.), and butternut ( Juglans cinerea  L., Juglandaceae  ).
