Epuraea rufa has been recorded in Canada from Ontario and Québec ( McNamara 1991), and in the United States from New Hampshire south to Georgia, west to Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Minnesota, and in Washington and Oregon ( Parsons 1943; Kirejtshuk and Pakaluk 1996; Chandler 2001). The species is found in leaf litter, at sap, in fungi, on tree bark, and on driftwood and was also reared from fallen seeds of sugar maple ( Acer saccharum Marsh. , Aceraceae ) ( Parsons 1943; Price and Young 2006).
