Distribution.

Origin: Holarctic. Canada: MB [new record], NB, NF, NT, SK. United States: AK.

Bionomics.

Nearctic specimens have been collected most frequently along the margins of running water but also along the margins of a forest pool ( Klimaszewski et al. 2018).

Comments.

Dasygnypeta velata   is newly reported from North America and was previously known in the Nearctic region under the synonym Gnypeta minuta   ( Klimaszewski et al. 2018). We here newly record this taxon from MB. Dasygnypeta velata   is here considered a Holarctic species as it has a broad, transpalaearctic distribution (Europe to Siberia; Newton 2019), occurs along rivers and has been collected north of the treeline in Alaska.

This species has been collected together with D. nigrella   in southern Manitoba (see above). The barcode sequences of the specimens from Alaska are all partial (386 to 407 bp), but the overlapping parts of the sequences are identical to the two German sequences.
