In the late 1990s surveys, this species “was common at the Lewis-Dickens Farm and Rodman Hollow areas” (Mark Mello, pers. comm.) This species has been rare in the present survey, though Lewis-Dickens Farm has not been surveyed, and the only survey night close to the location near Rodman’s Hollow surveyed in the 1990s was in late June, potentially too early to coincide with the peak flight time of coortaria.
