Part of the native Sonoran Desert lepitoptera series, Marine Blues (Leptotes marina) can be found year-round in the desert and as migrants in temperate zones. They have adapted to disturbed habitat and can have multiple broods in a season. These traits allow Marine Blues to be common and widespread. Their host plants include legumes such as this Parry's false prairie-clover (Marina parryi) which can bloom anytime of year, even during dry spells.
