Epitheca spinigera (Spiny Baskettail)This baskettail’s habitat preferences in Vermont are somewhat difficult to distinguish from that of E. canis, which also shares a somewhat similar distribution. It is, however, usually encountered in low numbers, occasionally at or near peatlands and marshes. In northeastern US, Vermont tends to be near the southern edge of E. spinigera’s range, with many states to the south reporting its status as vulnerable or imperiled.
