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).
