North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Resident in southeast North America with a large migratory range throughout much of central and eastern North America (Scott 1986). Habitats are OPEN AREAS, ESPECIALLY IN RANGES SOUTH INTO CENTRAL AMERICA. Host plants are usually herbaceous with most known 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 the approximate flight time JUN15-SEP31 in the northern part of the range and year round in the southern part of their range (Scott 1986). This species is sometimes considered synonymous with species Pyrisitia lisa (Scott 1986)
