Natural history.

Specimens from NB were found in dung and litter at the entrance of a woodchuck burrow in a meadow, jack pine forest adjacent to a field, and a hardwood forest adjacent to a meadow. In NF, adults were captured in unbaited and carrion-baited pitfall traps in balsam fir forests and in rotting mushrooms in a mixed forest ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011). In ON, it was collected in a hedgerow ( Brunke et al. 2012). Lohse et al. (1990) reported the species from bear and caribou dung. Adults were collected during May in NB and June to August elsewhere ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011, Lohse et al. 1990).
