Collection and habitat data
Ptilinus ruficornis occurred in various deciduous and coniferous forest types in New Brunswick. This species was captured in a mature hardwood forest with sugar maple, American beech, and white ash, an old red oak forest, an old silver maple (Acer saccharinum L.) forest, an old red pine forest, a mature (110-year-old) red spruce forest with scattered red maple and balsam fir, and an old-growth eastern white cedar forest/swamp. Most adults were captured in Lindgren funnel traps; one individual was beaten from balsam fir foliage. The larvae of Ptilinus sp. mine hardwoods (Philips 2002). Adults were captured during June, July, and August.
