This pair, in D6B, appears to be of the same species previously observed in Zone 46 (observation 51635). The common denominator is abundant Balsam fir (Abies balsamea). Perhaps this is L. thyinos’s MR partner.

are all in low, damp areas with mature Abies balsamea close by (and often other conifers).

in a variety of coniferous settings…. hemlock, pine, etc; mainly in mountain gorges, often nearby streams. Seems to be most common north of Pennsylvania. Complete lack of green staining gives it away.
