Collection and habitat data
This species was collected along a lake margin, and in a Carex marsh, an old red oak (Quercus rubra L.) forest, a mature red spruce (Picea rubens Sarg.) forest, an old red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) forest, a mature mixed forest, and an 8.5-year-old regenerating mixed forest. Adults were collected by treading sedges (Carex sp.) and grasses along a lake margin, sifting moss and leaf litter, and sifting sphagnum from a Carex hummock in a Carex marsh. This species was capable of jumping out of a 15 cm high sifting box. This species was also captured in Lindgren funnel traps. Adults were collected during April, May, June, and July.
