Habitats and Life History
Habitats:
Plant Associates: Derbidae are known or assumed to feed on fungal hyphae as immatures (UDEL).
Behavior: Probably can be attracted at night with a light.
Comment: A majority of Cedusa look very similar externally, appearing bluish overall. The only way to make a positive ID for many of the species at this point is to examine the genitalia of the males. Therefore, a male specimen is necessary for many species' identifications. Detailed, clear photographs of the male underside showing the genitalia can also be helpful, and perhaps the hope is that after observing enough specimens of a particular species, there may be slight external features that can be associated with an ID.
