Alkali Skipper
Pseudocopaeodes eunus

Observation date: August 09, 2016
Submitted by: philohela
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Habitat = alkali area adjacent to spring outflow.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: December 31, 2016
Coordinator notes: Looks like it to me but of course an upperside view would be better. I am very familiar with that species and the general location and habitat fit and you were on a Preserve so collecting is likely not possible. The populations in my area are doing poorly because the Preserve land is kept at climax state and many years of drought.-Ken Davenport
