Diagnosis.— Males are characterised by the shape of the distal portion of the radix, and the large tegulum. Females are characterised by oval spermathecae and an inconspicuous atrium.

Distribution.— Greenland, widespread in Canada, from Alaska to Nova Scotia. The distribution of the species fits the boreal with southern extension category proposed by LeSage & Paquin (2001).

Remark.— The occurrence of the species was suspected by Paquin & Dupérré (2003, figs 2407–2408). The present records suggest that the species has an affinity for conifer forests.
