North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Lampides boeticus ranges from Africa to southern Europe, across southern Asia to Japan, India, Ceylon, the Philippines, and Australia and Samoa. It is a resident in the main islands of Hawaii, but is not found elsewhere in North America (Scott 1986). Habitats are tropical open fields and woodland. Host plants are usually herbaceous and include many species but mostly in one family, Leguminosae. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There are multiple flights year round (Scott 1986).
