Collection and habitat data
Adults of Gnorimella maculosa are often found nectaring on flowers and frequent forested areas (See Majka 2010 for a list of plant species and associated references on which adults have been found). In New Brunswick, 30 individuals of Gnorimella maculosa were captured in Lindgren funnel traps deployed in an old silver maple (Acer saccharinum L.) swamp during June and July in 2010 and 2011.
Distribution in Canada and Alaska
