General range maps suggest this species occupies s. Vermont and it was included on a state faunal list by Ross Bell despite reporting no records on dot maps. Until a specimen is recorded, this species remains ‘hypothetical’ for Vermont.
The Northern Mole Cricket lives up to its name: It lives in burrows in soft ground and its front legs are equipped with enlarged claws well suited for digging in soil and sand. It is found at margins of lakes and streams; low, mucky ground.
The Northern Mole Cricket dines primarily on small insects and other invertebrates, as well as organic debris and plant matter.
Adults occur nearly year-round.
