Habitats and Life History
Habitats: North Carolina records come from cove forests in the Mountains and rich alluvial forests in the Piedmont. Coastal Plain records may come from cultivated Pecans but are located in areas close to brownwater river floodplains where Black Walnuts would be present.
Larval Host Plants: Larvae feed on Black Walnut, Butternut, and Pecan (Heinrich, 1956; Neunzig, 1972).
