This species does not fly high, but seems to keep within 3m of the ground and tends to rest on vegetation in the regions of a meter off the ground. Tawny Coster can be seen in abundance wherever its larval foodplant (Passiflora species) is found. The adult tends to avoid dense undergrowth and shady areas, instead keeping to open spaces in all types of vegetation.
