Distribution.

Natural history.

In Saskatchewan, one male was captured from the riparian zone of a pond. In Newfoundland, most adults were collected in forests of various types (deciduous, coniferous, mixedwood, riparian) using carrion-baited pitfall traps and flight intercept traps, as well as on coastal barrens using pitfall traps and on rotting mushrooms ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011). Elsewhere, adults were collected on gilled, polypore and coral fungi, in compost and other organic debris, and in rotten logs, and the usual habitat is forest, e.g., hardwoods, eastern white cedar swamps, red spruce/yellow birch, hemlock, mixedwood ( Klimaszewski and Peck 1986, Klimaszewski et al. 2005, 2007b, Majka and Klimaszewski 2008, Webster et al. 2009, Majka and Klimaszewski 2010). The adults were collected from April to August.
