Collection and habitat data
Platysoma leconti is found under bark of a variety of dead deciduous tree species (maples (Acer spp.), oaks (Quercus spp.), elm (Ulmus spp.), poplars (Populus sp.), ashes (Fraxinus spp.)) and pines (Bousquet and Laplante 2006). In New Brunswick, this species was found under bark of a red oak, under bark with fermented sap of a dead standing birch (Betula sp.), and among polypore fungi on a poplar log. Adults were also caught in Lindgren funnel traps. Adults were captured during April, May, June, and August.
