Bionomic Notes. Calodera parviceps was most frequently collected from leaf litter and moss under alders that were associated with vernal ponds, brooks and small streams, and areas with sedges ( Carex sp.). Th ese habitats occurred in mixed forests, old-growth eastern white cedar swamps, silver maple ( Acer saccharinum L.) swamps, and alder swamps. Assing (2008) suggested that this species was likely an inhabitant of the litter layer of moist habitats, as are its closely related congeners. Adults were collected during April, May, June, and September. Collection method: sifting.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska. NS, NB, ON ( Assing 2008). Assing (2008) reported C. parviceps for the first time from Canada from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Ontario. Th e above records indicate that C. parviceps is probably widely distributed in New Brunswick in and near forested wetlands.
