North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Anaea floridalis is a year-round resident in s. Florida, and migratory northward (Scott 1986). It ranges southward to Honduras and the Antilles. Habitats are subtropical pine-palmetto scrub and desert wooded areas. Host plants are herbaceous and restricted to several species of one genus, Croton (Euphorbiaceae). There are multiple flights all year in s. Fla. Some sources consider this a subspecies of Anaea troglodyta (Scott 1986).
