Habitats are subtropical and lower Sonoran zone canyons (including urban gardens in Mexico City). Host plants include several succulent species restricted to family Crassulaceae. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. Individuals overwinter as pupae. There are multiple flights between Mar1-Dec31 each year (Scott 1986).
