Habitats are valley bottoms and high-plains cottonwood groves, often in shady areas. Host plants are broadleaf grasses from several different genera. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There is one flight each year with the approximate flight time June 15-July 31 (Scott 1986). Some sources consider this a subspecies of Poanes zabulon (Scott 1986).
