Nyctelius nyctelius is not a resident in North America, but strays into southern Texas, California and Arizona from Mexico. It ranges south to Argentina and through most of the Bahamas and Antilles (Scott 1986). Habitats are subtropical thorn forest and open areas. Host plants are grasses. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There are multiple flights in Mexico, and migration to southern Texas between May 1-Dec. 31, southern California between Oct. 1-Oct.31, and Arizona between Sept.1-Sept 30 (Scott 1986).
