The larva and pupa of Nola pustulata (Walker) are described and illustrated. Lyonia ligustrina (L.) DC. [Ericaceae] is established as a host. The moth is much more restricted in distribution than its food plant. The species is univoltine, overwintering as an egg that is
deposited on the twigs of the food plant. Hatching coincides with bud burst. A keel-shaped cocoon is produced and adults emerge in early June. A parasitoid, Distatrix sp. (Hymenoptera:Braconidae), and a predator, Nabis inscriptus Kirby (Heteroptera: Nabidae) are reported.
