Adult moth in Apple Valley. Photo by Amanda Steenson. The nearest habitat for the larvae of this species would be the Mojave River bed to the west. California's native wild grape (Vitis girdiana) has been recorded from where Interstate 15 crosses the river.

Photo by Dana Cole: "These birds would not leave us alone! When we stood very still, they flew so close to us that I could have reached out and touched them! They *seemed* angry with us- maybe we were close to a nest? They were beautiful- they looked black (or very dark) and flew at us like a bullet and then would flash their red chests at us. It was a very cool experience!"
