Photuris bethaniensis McDermott, 1953, is recorded only from Sussex County, Delaware, from the original species description. In 1998 we relocated P. bethaniensis near the type locality. From 1998 through 2000, Photuris bethaniensis was found exclusively within freshwater interdunal swales occurring within Delaware's backdune depressions. The species was discovered in 7 of 18 swales surveyed within a 25-km stretch of Atlantic shoreline. Photuris bethaniensis was most common in swales with dense shrub thickets. The temporal stability of freshwater interdunal swales may be an important factor influencing the distribution of this species.
