Résumé
A breeding population of Ascia (Ganyra) (Lepidoptera : Pieridae), in the josephina complex, is confirmed for Arizona. The egg, various larval instars, and the pupa are discussed and figured for the first time. The larval host-plant is found to be Atamisquea emarginata Miers., a plant confined to the Sonoran Desert. This population, while closely related to Ascia josephina josepha, is distinct in maculation, androconial pattern, genitalia, and biology. Its taxonamic status is discussed. Full species status is given to the insect as Ascia howarthi (Dixey).
