Habitats and Life History
Habitats: Habitat information on this species appears to be unavailable. Given its preference for visiting Ceanothus and a nesting preference for bare, open ground, the habitats used by this species are probably open woodlands composed of upland species of hardwoods and pines. The one record we have is from Southern Pines, which is consistent with this hypothesis.
Larval Host Plants: Considered to be oligolectic on Ceanothus and Houstonia by Fowler and Droege (2020).
