Bledius neglectus Casey, 1889  

NEW BRUNSWICK: Albert Co.: Mary’s Point, 12.VIII.2004, C.G. Majka, coastal barrier beach: coastline drift, (4, CGMC). NOVA SCOTIA: Digby Co.: Sandy Cove, 4.VIII.1971, B. Wright, (1, NSMC).

Herman (1976) recorded this species from Newfoundland, Nova Scotia (the Atlantic coast), and the French territory of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon. Its distribution in Atlantic Canada is shown in Fig. 14 View Fig . Campbell and Davies’s (1991) checklist included the species from New Brunswick without, however, providing any records. The above records establish its presence in New Brunswick and indicate that the species occurs on both the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick shores of Bay of Fundy. It is found on moist, un-vegetated sand flats on the leeward sides of islands and peninsulas, as well as in the intertidal zone. It has been collected in the region in association with the predaceous carabids Dyschirius sphaericollis Say   and Dyschirius pallipennis Say ( Herman 1976)   .
