Biology. Olsen et al., 2018: 146 (in North America a species of open woods (Alexander 1916, 1924) and during a study on woods in Kans found to be common in vernal seepage in bottomland woods and in the mesic thicket around pond margins (Young 1978); in Finland found in swampy forests (Salmela 2012a); period of flight in northern Europe is June-August, in North America March-December and considered bivoltine (Petersen 2003); see table 1 for habitat information of the Norwegian locality(ties)).
Habitat. Salmela, 2012b: 224 (localities are swampy forests).
Phenology. Petersen, 2003: 32, 92 (period of flight in relation to altitude, bivoltine).
Characters. Olsen et al., 2018: 146 (this Glochina species is characterized by clear wings and vein Sc ending near the base of Rs; male genitalia with a tubercle on the inner upper side of the gonocoxite, bearing a tuft of hairs; rostral lobe of outer gonostyle just slightly wider at base than before rostral spines, trapezium-shaped; rostral spines short and strongly diverging; fig).
Key. Podenas and Gelhaus, 2007: 53 (key, figs).
Characters. Conrow and Gelhaus, 2022: 136-163 (detailed study on wing interference patterns (WIP); the study seeks to establish WIP as a stable, sexually dimorphic, species-level character across the four families of Tipuloidea and investigate generic level WIP; thirteen species of Tipuloidea were selected from museum specimens; descriptions of the WIP for each sex of each species are provided.; twelve of thirteen species imaged had WIP, which were stable and species specific while eight of those twelve had sexually dimorphic WIP; figs; see paper for details).
