Bionomic Notes. In New Brunswick, adults of E. dentata  were collected from leaf litter near the margin of a brook in a red maple swamp, the margin of a brook shaded by alders in a mixed forest, and under decaying seaweed (sea wrack) on a sea beach. Several adults were collected from among corncobs and cornhusks on the margin of a mixed forest. Several adults were collected early in the spring (April) during their dispersal flights using an aerial net. Elsewhere this species has been recorded from leaf litter, river debris, and pocket gopher ( Geomys  sp.) burrows ( Gusarov 2002b). Adults were collected in April, May, June, July, August, and September. Collection method: sifting, some collected with net during evening flight.
