General Species Information

Host Plant: Host unknown in the Keys. A live female was placed in a cage with leaves of sea grape, oleander and other species of plants and no eggs were produced in three days

Historical Range:  Lower Keys only

Our Experience with this Species: The day we found this species for the first time on No Name Key was an extremely exciting day - July 2013. There were three individuals that showed up at the lights that night. We returned to the same place over a dozen nights after that and never found another specimen until June 10th of 2016 when 5 individuals showed up in three different locations on No Name Key and on Big Pine Key. Jim Troubridge also found this species on Bahia Honda Key a few times in the month of July of 2013
