North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Host plants are restricted to vine species in family Passifloraceae, mainly genus Passiflora in Latin America. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly, or rarely in clusters of 2-3. There are multiple flights all year in Mex., with migration into s. Tex. April1-Dec 31 (Scott 1986). Some sources consider this species as Heliconius isabella
