Mormon Metalmarks can be found in many habitats including sand dunes, dry and rocky desert washes, and some mountain areas. The caterpillars feed on various buckwheat plants. The adults will nectar on buckwheat flowers, as well as other flowers around them. The adults are brightly patterned. I found this Mormon Metalmark this past summer while in central Arizona.
