BiologyAdults of this single-brooded species are most often seen flying around the foodplant between early June and mid-August (2). The eggs are laid singly on the undersides of the leaves of the balsam (3). The caterpillars are present in August and September (2) initially feeding on leaves, and then progressing to flowers and seedpods. Pupation over the winter takes place in moist soil (4).
