Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

ON, QC, NB ( Bousquet et al. 2013). All new records of Ceracis singularis   (Dury) in NB were based on specimens captured in Lindgren funnel traps or a flight intercept trap. This species is widespread in the province (seven localities) but was captured in low numbers at each site. This species was found in hardwood, mixed, and pine forests. These are the first records of this species from the Maritime Provinces of Canada.
