Distribution.

Natural history.

The SK specimens were captured by sifting aspen litter, maple litter, aspen choke-cherry leaf litter, willow and aspen litter, hawthorn litter near creek, willow leaf litter, under fresh-cut aspen log rings, from decaying woodland bracket/gilled fungi, and from compost, in May through October. In Newfoundland, adults were frequently caught in pitfall traps in various forest types (birch, spruce-lichen, spruce-poplar, fir), in vegetation on coastal sand dunes, on shrubby limestone barrens and in disturbed fields amongst grass and weeds ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011). The activity period is June to September. Adults were captured with pitfall traps from June to August in moss and leaf litter in red spruce forest in New Brusnwick and yellow birch/balsam fir forests in southern Quebec ( Klimaszewski et al. 2005 b, 2007b, 2015b).
