North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Anaea andria are year-round residents in the southeastern and central United States, migratory in some parts of their range, into Wyo. and Mich., and the species ranges south to Veracruz, Mex. (Scott 1986). Habitats are wooded areas, roadsides, recently cleared fields, railroad tracks, and prairie cottonwood groves. Host plants are herbaceous and restricted to a few species in one genus, Croton (Euphorbiaceae). Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as adults. There is a variable number of flights based on latitude, 3-4 flights year-round on gulf coast, two flights, July1-Aug.15 in the northern part of the range (Scott 1986).
