Klimaszewski et al. (2011) reported Neothetalia canadiana  from pitfall traps in coastal barrens in NF. In other areas, it had been found in gopher burrows, carrion, and in litter on the forest floor in a white spruce feather moss forest ( Klimaszewski and Pelletier 2004). The sole NB specimen was captured in a Lindgren funnel trap in an old-growth white spruce and balsam fir forest.
