Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

NT, BC, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS ( Bousquet et al. 2013). All new records of Cis horridulus   Casey from NB were provided by specimens captured in Lindgren funnel traps. This species is widespread (10 localities) in the province. Adults were captured in hardwood, mixed, and conifer forests.

Taxonomic notes.

A male was dissected, and its genitalia compared with those of the closely related Palaearctic species Cis punctulatus   Gyllenhal and Cis tomentosus   Mellié, and it was confirmed that Cis horridulus   is not conspecific with these two species.
