Red-Spotted Purples range from all the eastern US and most of Canada.
Host plants include most species of Salix (Willow) such as:
Sandbar Willow (Salix exigua) and
Black Willow (Salix nigra) and others.
Eggs are a greenish color and laid singly on top of leaves.
Adults feed from flower nectar, rotting fruit, sap, decaying wood, etc.
In my garden they seem to prefer rotting bananas over flowers.
