Ecology A widespread terrestrial species in the United States including California. Chamberlin (1912a), amongst other records included two specimens (as G.rubens)collected on a sandy beach at Pacific Grove, Calif. He also recorded it ( as G.deducens) from a sea cliff at Long Island (New York) (Chamberlin, 1909 cited in Crabill, 1954).
Perhaps best regarded as an "accidental" halophile. [details]

Habitat This species is either supralittoral or can be found in the intertidal zone but does not live there naturally.
