Orange Skipperling
Copaeodes aurantiaca

Observation date: October 29, 2016
Submitted by: abwest
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Very tiny skipper only about 3/8" (being generous, maybe 1/2") across. A couple of these were nectaring in the same area. Size appeared smaller than BAMONA info of 5/8"-7/8" for Southern Skipperling but guessing that size is with the wings outstretched (i.e. if a mounted specimen)?
