Licea biforis was first described in 1893 by B. Morgan (Lister, 1911), and later by Lister (1911), Fullmer (1921), Macbride (1922), Hagelstein (1944), and Martin (1949). Distribution of the species as given by Hagelstein (1944) is: Iowa, Kansas, New York, Ontario, and Pennsylvania. Martin (1949) adds Poland and Eastern Asia, and Macbride (1922) includes Canada. Hagelstein (1944) is of the opinion that L. biforis probably has a much wider distribution than that indicated above, but is overlooked because of its small size and its habitat on dead wood.
