Chamobates borealis is a forest species, found mainly in soil. In Norway it is common and abundant in forests, but has been also found in Svalbard tundra. It reproduces sexually and feeds on fungi and lichens. It can be confused with C. pusillus, although both species differ on the molecular and morphological level.
