Observation notes: Clear day, around 70 degrees, mid-afternoon- skipper was sitting in middle of cement walkway - fairly shy; spooked once but landed in a better place, but after two images, flew over the hill and into the brush - attempts to relocate were unsuccessful.

Coordinator notes: I believe this is Agathymus neumoegeni. The hindwing underside and above-wing pattern look right and the date of observation is consistent with the flight time of this species, which is resident in the sighting locale. This species is not often seen, so this is a great find. SAT
