Material examined.

Additional New Brunswick record. Restigouche Co., Dionne Brook P.N.A., 47.9064°N, 68.3441°W, 31.V-15.VI.2011, M. Roy & V. Webster, coll. // Old-growth white spruce & balsam fir forest, Lindgren funnel trap (1 ♀, RWC).

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

NB ( Klimaszewski et al. 2013b).


Several females originally thought to possibly be Dinaraea curtipenis  ( Klimaszewski et al. 2013b) were later determined to be Dinaraea subdepressa  (Bernhauer). However, we found another specimen from NB that proved to be a female of Dinaraea curtipenis  . All external characters agree with those of the males. Here, we illustrate the female spermatheca, tergite, and sternite VIII for the first time (Figs 182-184).
