Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 1 times Sandy soil. Bivouac under rock in open., 1 times rock outcrop, 1 times male at light, 1 times at light, 1 times at headlamp.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 2 times at light, 2 times pitfall, 1 times blacklight, 1 times hand collecting.
