Notes on Alypia octomaculata (Eight-spotted Forester Moth)

Habitat: Open areas with flowers, presumably near woodland edges where hostplants grow.

Season: March-July (BG data)

Food: Larvae feed on leaves of grape (Vitis spp.), peppervine (Ampelopsis spp.), and Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia).
Adults take nectar from flowers of herbaceous plants, and fly during the day.
