Natural history.

The SK specimens were found in moose dung, under bark of dead aspen, and in compost in June, August and September. In NL, adults were collected in July using flight intercept traps in mixedwood forest and carrion traps on coastal shrubby barrens ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011). Elsewhere, adults were collected in July and August from red spruce dominated regenerating forest in NB ( Klimaszewski et al. 2005). In Europe, this species is very common in cow dung and rotting organic debris.
