Collection and habitat data
No habitat data were reported by Brown (1931) or Gordon and Cartwright (1988) for this species. The Aegialia (sensu stricto) are usually found on coastal and inland dune systems or on gravel shores of streams and ponds (subgenus Psammoporus) (Gordon and Cartwright 1988). The adults from New Brunswick were found under driftwood on a sand dune along a sea beach. Adults were collected during late May.
