North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Polites sabuleti is a year-round resident in the western United States from southern British Columbia south through Baja, Mexico (Scott 1986). Habitats are moist meadows, urban lawns and alkali grassland in valley bottoms. Host plants are grasses species of several genera. Eggs are laid on the host plant and other substrates singly. Individuals overwinter as pupae. There is a variable number of flights each year depending on latitude but several flights between June 1-early Sept. in most places (Scott 1986).
