Majka and Klimaszewski (2008) newly recorded Tasgius ater   in New Brunswick and on Prince Edward Island. Its distribution in the Maritime Provinces is shown in Majka and Klimaszewski (2008). It is also recorded from Newfoundland ( Campbell and Davies 1991). As the above records indicate, this introduced species is often found beneath wood and stones at coastal sites, although it is also found in inland locations. It is a widely distributed Palearctic species known in North America since at least 1802 ( Majka and Klimaszewski 2008).
