Bionomic Notes. Most specimens of D. rudiventris   from New Brunswick were found in moist leaf litter near the margins of vernal ponds in mixed forests and silver maple swamps (flood plain forest) similar to habitats reported from Europe in Majka and Klimaszewski (2008b). Adults were captured in April, May and July. Collection method: sifting.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska. YT, NT, QC, NB, NF & LB ( Gusarov 2003; Gouix and Klimaszewski 2007; Majka and Klimaszewski 2008b). Dochmonota rudiventris   is probably transcontinental in distribution in Canada and may be a Holarctic species.
