Philonthus cognatus   is an introduced Palearctic species, widely distributed in both eastern and western North America (there are few records from the central portions of the continent). Its distribution in North America is shown in Smetana (1995). Smetana (1995) records it from a wide range of habitats. Hammond (2000) includes it as a generalist species found in the upper levels of salt marshes in Great Britain. It is a common species in Atlantic Canada and there are some records from coastal environments ( Wright 1989), however, it is primarily found in synanthropic inland situations.
