Natural history.

One NB specimen was collected from moose dung in an old-growth northern hardwood forest; another was captured in a Lindgren funnel trap in an adjacent old-growth white spruce and balsam fir forest. In NF, adults were collected from pitfall traps in fir and riparian forests ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011). Gusarov (2003) reports the species from leaf litter, often near water. Specimens from NB were captured during May and June.
