Natural history.

In SK, one male was captured under bark of recently killed aspen. In AB, adults were reared from white spruce logs in early and intermediate decay stages in white spruce dominated stands ( Klimaszewski et al. 2015a). Elsewhere, adults were found in various deciduous and coniferous forests, using a flight intercept trap, ethanol-baited Lindgren funnel traps, pit-light traps, and pitfall traps ( Klimaszewski et al. 2001).
