Collection and habitat data
Diapterna pinguis is apparently a detritivore, having been collected in pitfall traps in areas without mammal dung (Gordon and Skelley 2007). It is common “in shelter belts in floodplain forests, apparently feeding in the humus layer” (Helgesen and Post 1967). The individual from New Brunswick was captured during July in a Lindgren funnel trap deployed in an old red oak forest.
