North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Hamadryas februa is found in North America only as an occasional stray in Texas from Mexico; it ranges south to Argentina (Scott 1986). Habitats are open subtropical woods or cultivated areas with trees. Host plants are vine and herbaceous species restricted to family Euphorbiaceae. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly, or in stacks of two or three on top of each other. There are multiple flights all year in Mexico (Scott 1986).
