Available data.

New Brunswick, Westmorland Co., Moncton, 13.VII.1987, P. Maltais (UMC)

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

ON, QC, NB, NS ( Bousquet et al. 2013). Cis creberrimus   Melli√© was first reported from NB by Bousquet et al. (2013) but without supporting data. Chris Majka supplied the data for the specimen, which is in the collection of the University of Moncton. However, the curator of the collection was unable to locate the specimen. The inclusion of this species in the fauna of NB should be considered provisional until the specimen can be located.

Taxonomic note.

Cis creberrimus   is somewhat similar to Cis angustus   and may be confounded with this species. In view of this, the NB specimen identified as Cis creberrimus   , could be Cis angustus   .
