Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

NT, BC, AB, MB, ON, QC, NB ( Bousquet et al. 2013). Most records of Dolichocis manitoba   from NB were based on specimens captured in Lindgren funnel traps. This species is widespread (12 localities) and fairly common in the province. This species was first reported from NB by Pielou and Verna (1968) (records included above). Dolichocis manitoba   was captured in hardwood, mixed, and conifer forests. Specimens were reared from Piptoporus betulinus   (= Polyporus betulinus   ) from four sites by D.P. Pielou.
