Collection and habitat data

Adultshave been reported from fungi, dung, and various decaying organic material (Howden 1955[1]; Downie and Arnett 1996[2]). Adults from New Brunswick were collected from decaying mushrooms and decaying moldy corncobs and cornhusks. One individual was captured in a Lindgren funnel trap deployed in an old red oak (Quercus rubra L.) forest, and another was collected as it flew along a woodland trail. Adults were collected during June and September.
