Mocyta fungi (Gravenhorst, 1806)  

NOVA SCOTIA: Digby Co.: Brier Island, Pond Cove , 10.VIII.2004, J. Ogden and K. Godwin, rocky shore, pitfall trap, (1, JOC)   ; Brier Island, Pond Cove , 15.IX.2004, J. Ogden and K. Godwin, sand dunes, pitfall trap, (1, JOC)   ; Pictou Co.: Caribou, 23.VII.2005, C.G. Majka, wet seepage on seashore, (1, CGMC). PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND: Queens Co. : Trout River , 28.VI.2003, C.G. Majka, on dung at edge of brackish marsh, (1, CGMC)   .

Gusarov (2001 -2003) reported this species from New Brunswick and Majka and Klimaszewski (2008) reported it from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Its distribution in the Maritime Provinces is shown in Majka and Klimaszewski (2008). Most of the specimens collected in Atlantic Canada are from agricultural fields, however, there are some records (above) from coastal habitats. Hammond (2000) includes it as a generalist species found in the upper levels of salt marshes in Great Britain.
