North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Year-round resident in southeastern North America with some migratory sections of the range further north (Scott 1986). Habitats are WOODED AREAS, ESPECIALLY SWAMPS. Host plants are largely restricted to a few species mostly in one family, LAURACEAE. Hosts are usually trees. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as pupae. There are multiple flights each year with the approximate flight time MAY1-SEP30 in the northern part of the range and MAR1-DEC31 in the southern part of their range (Scott 1986).
