Restricted to an ever-diminishing area of specialized habitat under pressure from development and inappropriate land management, the bay checkerspot is in long-term decline throughout its range. The larvae are dependent on two larval host plants adapted to seasonally dry conditions on serpentine-derived soils. Historically, the bay checkerspot was widely distributed to the east, west, and south of San Francisco Bay, but is now limited to six core areas on the west and southern edges of the Bay.
