Collection and habitat data
Scaphidium spp. are associated with old logs and polypore fungi (Newton et al. 2000). In New Brunswick, one individual of S. quadriguttatum was collected from foliage (beating) in a mixed forest, and others were captured in Lindgren funnel traps deployed in an old (180-year-old trees) mixed forest, an old red oak (Quercus rubra L.) forest, and an old-growth balsam fir (Abies balsamsea (L.) Mill.) and white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) forest. Adults were collected during May, June, and July.
