Observation notes: Adults resting on very large clump of coontie (Zamia integrifolia) in shade of sabal palms. As areas of coontie became lit by sun adults in that area became more active, opening and closing wings, eventually flying short distances around the clump of coontie. Also noted larvae (feeding), pupae and exuviae on same clump of coontie.
