Collection and habitat data
Löbl and Stephan (1993) reported that Baeocera securiforma occurred in similar habitats as Baeocera congener Casey, namely in a variety of forest litter. The New Brunswick specimens were collected from moss in an eastern white cedar swamp, in litter and sphagnum in a sphagnum hummock on the margin of a Carex marsh and a tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi) K. Koch) bog, and from the nest contents of a barred owl (Strix varia Barton). The adults were collected during April and May.
