Host plants are grasses (bamboo), known species are Arundinaria gigantea and A. Tecta. Eggs are laid on or near the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as larvae. There are multiple flights each year with the approximate flight time mostly Apr. 15-Nov. 15 (Scott 1986). Some sources synonymize this species with Lethe portlandia (Scott 1986).
