Natural history.

Mniusa odelli  was originally described from specimens captured in Lindgren traps in an old-growth eastern hemlock forest. Additional specimens were collected in Lindgren funnel traps in a rich Appalachian hardwood forest (originally determined as Mniusa minutissima  ), an old Populus balsamifera  stand near a river, and in an old mixed forest. Nothing is known about the specific habitat requirements of this species.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.
