Host plants are herbaceous, limited to a couple species within genus Viola (Violaceae). Eggs are laid haphazardly near the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as unfed, first instar larvae. There is one flight each year with the approximate flight time mostly June1-July31, but rarely into early Sept. (Scott 1986).
