Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

MB, ON, QC, NB, NS, NF ( Bousquet et al. 2013). All but one of the new records of Malacocis brevicollis   (Casey) from NB were based on specimens captured in Lindgren funnel traps. This species is widespread (15 localities) in NB but was captured in low numbers at each site. Specimens were captured in hardwood, mixed, and conifer forests.
