This introduced Palearctic species is newly recorded in Nova Scotia ( Fig. 1 View Fig ). Bousquet (1991) reported it from New Brunswick. Species of Silvanus   are found under the bark of logs and dead trees where they are at least partly fungivorous ( Thomas 1993). In Nova Scotia they have most frequently been found in coniferous forests, under the bark of red spruce ( Picea rubens Sarg.   ) and white pine ( Pinus strobus L.   ) ( Pinaceae   ) and on maple ( Acer   sp.).
