Natural history.

In SK, one specimen was found in Scirpus  wrack on the shore of saline pond, and three others were found in unspecified habitats in May, July and September. In NB, one specimen was found under a cobblestone on moist sand on a lake margin ( Webster et al. 2016b). This widespread species occurs in open habitats, including dunes, beaches, limestone barrens, soybean fields, old fields, open gaps in spruce forest, riverbanks and groundhog burrows ( Brunke et al. 2012).
