Collection and habitat data
One of the New Brunswick specimens was collected in moss and leaf litter near a vernal pond, the other from a Lindgren funnel trap. In Indiana (USA), the species was usually found in cow dung and was frequent under “chunks” on the beach of Lake Michigan (Blatchley 1910). Adults were collected during June in New Brunswick.
