Map 37. Collection localities in New Brunswick, Canada of Atheta aemula  .

Bionomic Notes. Atheta aemula  is associated with decaying organic material in a variety of habitats. In New Brunswick, adults were collected under dog scat in a river margin (flood plain) forest, in decaying sea wrack on the upper margin of a sea beach, in compost (decaying vegetables) near a mixed forest, and on Pleurotus  sp. mushroom on a dead standing trembling aspen in a mixed forest. In the United States, this species has been found in flood refuse on a river bank, in rotting wood chips, and on mushrooms ( Gusarov 2003). Adults were collected in April, May, June, and July. Collection method: sifting.
