    DISTRIBUTION in North Carolina: Statewide, from the coast to the mountains, but scattered gaps in county distribution in the Piedmont and mountains; presumed, however, to occur in all NC counties.
    ABUNDANCE in North Carolina: Fairly common to locally common in the lower Coastal Plain; locally fairly common in the upper Coastal Plain and eastern Piedmont. However, uncommon in the mountains and the western 2/3rds of the Piedmont.
    FLIGHT PERIOD in North Carolina: Probably three broods, generally occurring from late April to early November. Rather scarce before mid-June, as the first brood is a small one. The second brood begins downstate in mid-June and in the mountains in early July, but the third brood overlaps broadly with the second.

    DISTRIBUTION in North Carolina: Statewide; found in all provinces, and presumably occurs in all counties.
    ABUNDANCE in North Carolina: Overall, uncommon to fairly common. Somewhat more numerous near the coast than elsewhere, and it may be common locally in some tidewater sites. Despite it being considered a common butterfly in the eastern United States, it is not a common butterfly in North Carolina. Interestingly, caterpillars are often seen on garden plants (in the umbel family), but adults seldom seem to be numerous.
    FLIGHT PERIOD in North Carolina: Late March to early October; rarely to early November. There are apparently three broods, but the species seems to have a nearly continuous flight period. In the Piedmont and Coastal Plain, abundance peaks in July and August.
