It is found from Argentina north to the southern United States. Strays can be found up to southern Arizona, South Dakota, southern Texas and even Washington, D.C. The wingspan is 32–41 mm. Adults are on wing year round in the southern part of the range and in late summer and fall as vagrant. The larvae feed on Fabaceae species, including Stylosanthes biflora and Aeschynomene species.
