North American Ecology (US and Canada)
Polites peckius is a year-round resident from Alberta and eastern Washington eastward across southern Canada and the northern United States, and in a few separate populations in the White Mountains, Arizona and in Colorado (Scott 1986). Habitats are meadows and prairie. Host plants are grasses, with known hosts Leersia oryzoides, Poa pratensis. Individuals overwinter as larvae and pupae. There is one flight each year in the northern part of their range with the approximate flight time July 1-July 31, and two flights elsewhere between late May-June 15 and late July ? Sept. 15(Scott 1986).
