  1. H. clysonymus occurs from sea level to 2,500 m in the cloud forest. In general, individuals fly quickly and in the lower part of the forest. Adults perch at night in small groups of 2 to 10 m above the ground in twigs or tendrils (Brown, 1981).

    Host plant: the larvae of H. clysonymus feed mainly on plants of the genus Passiflora, subgenres Tryphostemmatoides and Plectostemma (Brown, 1981). In Costa Rica H. c. montanus feeds on Passiflora apetala and P. biflora (DeVries, 1997).
