Adults were collected in a yellow birch ( Betula alleghaniensis Britt.)- balsam fir forest and an old-growth red spruce forest. In New Brunswick, this species was captured in Lindgren funnel traps deployed in an old red oak forest, an old mixed forest, an old red pine forest, and in an old-growth eastern white cedar forest. Adults were collected during June, July, and August.
