North American Ecology (US and Canada)

Enodia anthedon is resident to the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada (Scott 1986). Habitats are woods, often in shady areas. Host plants are multiple species of grasses. Individuals overwinter as third and fourth instar larvae. There is one flight each year in the northern part of their range, with the approximate flight time late June- early Aug., and two flights in the southern part of their range, between late May and early Sept. (Scott 1986). Some sources synonymize this species with Lethe anthedon (Scott 1986).
