Sandhill Skipper
Polites sabuleti

Observation date: October 18, 2014
Submitted by: Josiah Gilbert
Specimen type: Photograph
Collection location: Josiah Gilbert (personal collection)
Observation notes: By the time I realized the grass skippers weren't all Woodland Skippers and started paying attention to them, the Sandhill Skippers all seemed to disappear. I did get a nice one under my net, but it escaped. I managed to collect this one voucher.
