Philonthus furvus Nordman, 1837  

NEW BRUNSWICK: Charlotte Co.: St. Andrews, 17.VIII.1955, J.R. Vockeroth, (1, CNC). NOVA SCOTIA: Digby Co.: Brier Island, Pond Cove, 28.VII.2003, 15.IX.2004, J. Ogden & K. Goodwin, beach drift on rocky cobble shore, pitfall trap, (4, JOC).

Smetana (1995: 96) wrote, “ Philonthus furvus   is a distinctly hygrophilous species, occurring in all kinds of wet habitats, such as edges of lakes and ponds, marshes and swamps, banks of rivers and creeks, wet forests, seepages, etc.” Davies (1979) found this species was apparently well-adapted to, and dependant on, beach-wrack environments in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. The above records from Brier Island (NS) are from a similar environment. Its distribution in North America is shown in Smetana (1995).
