Distribution. Norrbom et al. (1999) reported the range of this species as “ Mexico (Veracruz, Chiapas), Guatemala, Honduras ”. Specimen data documenting these records are listed below.

Biology. Most of the examined specimens were collected on flowering Smallanthus maculatus (Cav.) H. Rob.   ( Fig. 114, 116–118) or S. riparius   (H.B.K.) H. Rob., which are probable hosts, although this needs confirmation by rearing.
