|Adult females lay hemispherical
eggs singly on the undersides of grass leaves during warm months. Newly
hatched larvae notch leaves while older larvae consume entire leaves.
From the third instar on, larvae spin silk shelters in the thatch and
are not usually seen. They pupate near the soil surface. Adults feed
on nectar from various flowers, favoring lantana. There are 3 to 5
generations a year.
