Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: BAMONA just identified my recent submission of Rare Skipper as Delaware, but there were several skippers there that same date and location, so I'm submitting another here and will send 3 more photos as they look like different individuals. For the previous submission's ID as Delaware, I did notice from the BAMONA website that there is size overlap and of course there's individual variation, but the dark upper hindwing margins on your website photo for Delaware look much thinner than the photo I sent...I appreciate that this is a tough ID...

Coordinator notes: Species determination has been revised to Rare Skipper after extensive review of additional photos of several specimens from same vicinity, day, and time period taken by submitter and an associate.
