North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Anartia jatrophaeis resident in North America in the south tip of Texas and in southern Fla, and migrates north, as far as Iowa and Massachusetts. This species ranges to Argentina and throughout the Bahamas and Antilles (Scott 1986). Habitats are subtropical open areas, disturbed and swampy places. Host plants are herbaceous and include species from many families, including Verbenaceae, Acanthaceae, Scrophulariaceae and Labiateae. Eggs are laid haphazardly, on or near the host plant, singly. There are multiple flights all year in southern Texas and Florida (Scott 1986).
