North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Copaeodes aurantiacus is a year-round resident in the southwestern United States from California through Texas, north to central New Mexico and south to Panama. It is migratory northward to central Kansas and Colorado (Scott 1986). Habitats are arid southwestern grassland and open woodland. Host plants are mostly restricted to grass species Cynodon dactylon, and it eats grasses in the lab. There are multiple flights each year with the approximate flight time April 1-Oct. 31 in the northern part of the range, March 1-Dec. 31 in southern California, and all year in southern Texas (Scott 1986).
