North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Limenitis lorquini is resident to the western United States and southwestern Canada (Scott 1986). Habitats are upper Sonoran to Canadian zone mountain canyons and deciduous woods. Host plants are trees and shrubs and include many species from families Saliaceae, Rosaceae and Rhamnaceae. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as half-grown larvae in a hibernaculum. There are several flights each year from April1-Oct 31 in the southern part of their range, and one flight between June 1-Aug.15 in the north. (Scott 1986).
