Edwards wasp moth is common throughout southern Florida. It has been reared from as far north as Monticello (Jefferson County), but most records are from south of a line from St. Petersburg to Vero Beach. There are continuous generations in southern Florida, and caterpillars may be found any month of the year. Distribution records may not be entirely indicative of the true range. Once larvae mature, they crawl about and pupate on walls of buildings as well as on many non-hosts. Therefore, movement of nursery plants with attached pupae may result in its presence in areas well outside its normal range.
