Habitats and Life History
Habitats: The vast majority of our records come from the Coastal Plain where all pine-containing habitats appear to be used, including Longleaf Pine savannas, flatwoods, and sand ridges; Pond Pine woodlands; and bottomlands and non-riverine swamps where Loblolly is the dominant pine. Piedmont records all come from mesic sites where Loblolly again is the predominant pine. In the Mountains, records also come from mesic sites, including cove forests and high elevation forests; either White Pine or Eastern Hemlock seem likely to be the hosts in these areas.
Larval Host Plants: Larvae feed on conifers (Covell, 1984). Pines are the most likely hosts over most of the state. - View
