Arogos Skipper
Atrytone arogos

Observation date: August 20, 2014
Submitted by: mhudson26
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: On thistle
Status: Resident
Verified by: stomlins701
Verified date: September 14, 2014
Coordinator notes: I believe this is an Arogos Skipper for the following reasons: 1) there looks like there is a remnant of a white fringe on the wing edges; 2) upon magnification, there appears to be some whitish-lighter color on the hingwing veining; 3) the antennae look like this species. I ruled out Least Skipper as the wings are not rounded enough and Delaware Skipper because of the whitish fringe.SAT
