Habitats and Life History
Habitats: Our records come mainly from residential areas. The few natural habitats include both riparian and upland areas. No xeric areas are included, unlike our records for D. kimballi.
Larval Host Plants: Larvae possibly feed on Pecans (Hodges, 1986). This information appears to come from the label on a single specimen from Edgecombe County, NC; Hodges was unsure whether it was actually reared on Pecan or whether the adult -- a worn specimen -- was collected on it.
