Lobiopa undulata  has been recorded in Canada from Alberta east to Québec (McNamara 1991), and broadly distributed throughout the United States ( Parsons 1943). The species is found at sap, under bark, at lights in the spring and fall, and typically overwinters beneath logs ( Parsons 1943; Downie and Arnett 1996), and sometimes gregariously in subcortical spaces (A. Cline, pers. obs.). Price and Young (2006) found it on a recently cut maple ( Acer  sp.) stump.
