Natural history.

In SK, one male was captured in May by sifting willow/grass litter, and one female was sifted from wrack on a lakeshore in June. In AB, adults were caught in window traps attached to aspen snags in a boreal aspen stand harvested 2 years previously, and in pitfall traps deployed in canola fields. Adults were collected in July ( Klimaszewski et al. 2016 a).
