General Description

Adults are diurnal, but occasionally also come to lights. They can be abundant flying over labrador tea (Ledum groenlandicum) bogs in June. Eggs are laid on the undersides of host leaves. The immature stages are described in detail by McGuffin (1977) and a mature larva is illustrated by Wagner et al. (2001).
