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).
