Natural history.

Most NB specimens of Phloeopora canadensis  were captured in Lindgren funnel traps, mostly in conifer or mixed forests. These included an old black spruce forest, an old-growth white spruce and balsam fir forest, a mature red and white spruce forest, an old white pine stand, an old mixed forest and a red oak forest (adjacent to a black spruce stand). The only specimens with microhabitat data were collected from under bark of red spruce and under scolytid ( Dendroctonus  ) infested bark of red spruce in a red spruce stand. Adults were collected from May to July. In NF, this species was collected in May, July, and October from under bark of tamarack recently killed by Dendroctonus simplex  LeConte ( Klimaszewski et al. 2011).
