Resident in southern North America with an extensive migratory range to the north (Scott 1986). Habitats are OPEN AREAS. Host plants are usually herbaceous with most hosts largely restricted to a few species in one family, LEGUMINOSAE. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There are multiple flights each year with flights year-round in the southern part of their range (Scott 1986). Sometimes considered synonymous with Colias cesonia (Scott 1986).
