North American Ecology (US and Canada)
Libytheana carinenta is a year-round resident in the southern United States, and is migratory through much of the northern US. It ranges to South America (Scott 1986). Habitats are woodland and thorn forest. Host plants are trees restricted to the genus Celtis (Ulmaceae). Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as adults, but only in the south. There are multiple flights all year in s Tex and s. Fla., Apr1-Sept30 in Va. (Scott 1986).
