Sepedophilus marshami (Stephens, 1832)


Sepedophilus marshami (Stephens, 1832)  

This species was recorded from Nova Scotia by Campbell (1976) and from New Brunswick by Majka and Klimaszewski (2008). Its distribution in North America is shown in Campbell (1976) and in the Maritime Provinces by Majka and Klimaszewski (2008). Davies (1979) found this adventive Palearctic species in seaweed beach wrack in St. Andrews (NB), and Campbell (1976) reported it from “shore refuse”. It has also been found in many forested, open, and fresh-water habitats and probably only occurs sporadically in coastline environments. Hammond (2000) includes it as a generalist species regularly reported from saline and intertidal situations in Great Britain.
