Natural history.

The original specimens of Mniusa minutissima  from NB were found by sifting moss near a brook and sifting deep conifer litter at the base of a large red spruce in a mature red spruce forest ( Klimaszewski et al. 2014). Previous records of this species captured from Lindgren funnel traps in a rich Appalachian hardwood forest reported by Klimaszewski et al. (2014) were Mniusa odelli  (see below). An additional record of Phloeopora minutissima  from NB is reported here from a Lindgren funnel trap in an old-growth eastern white cedar swamp and fen.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.
