Non-Migrant: Yes. At least some populations of this species do not make significant seasonal migrations. Juvenile dispersal is not considered a migration.
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make local extended movements (generally less than 200 km) at particular times of the year (e.g., to breeding or wintering grounds, to hibernation sites).
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make annual migrations of over 200 km.
Unlike the related M. quinquemaculatus and Agrias cingulatus, M. sexta is very rarely found outside of its normal range or during the fall when migrants most typically reach up the east coast into Canada. Instead the species seems to have a stable range and well adpated phenology.
