North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Junonia evarete is native to southern Florida, and also southern Arizona and southern Texas from which it is somewhat migratory into the southern United States; it ranges to South America to Argentina (Scott 1986). Habitats are open woodland and subtropical open fields, often in disturbed areas. . Host plants are herbaceous and include many species but mostly from one family, Scrophulariaceae. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There are multiple flights all year in southern Florida and southern Texas, and approximately April 1-Oct. 31 in Arizona (Scott 1986).
