Overview

Brief Summary

North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Junonia genoveva is resident in North America only in the southern tip of Florida and it is migratory to central Florida; its range extends through the Bahamas, Greater Antilles, St. Croix and the Atlantic coast of Mexico, from where it rarely strays into Texas (Scott 1986). Habitats are subtropical coastal Black Mangrove swamps and tidal flats. Host plants are herbaceous and largely restricted to a few species in family Verbenaceae. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There are multiple flights all year (Scott 1986).

Migration

Non-Migrant: No. All populations of this species make significant seasonal migrations.

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.

Junonia genoveva

The Mangrove Buckeye (Junonia genoveva) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is found from southern New Mexico, southern Arizona, southern Texas, and southern Florida south through the West Indies, Mexico and Central America to Argentina. Rare strays can be found up to south-eastern California, south-eastern Colorado and central Florida.

The wingspan is 45–57 mm. There are three to four generations from March to October.

The larvae have been recorded on Stachytarpheta, Ruellia tuberosa and Blechum in Jamaica. Adults feed on flower nectar.
