Brazilian Skipper
Calpodes ethlius

Observation date: July 22, 2017
Submitted by: SBurton
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Quite a large skipper. Rows of white spots on both FW and HW, sorry pix is not in sharp focus but hopefully enough to confirm. Nectaring on ornamental Clerodendron in Botanical Garden.
Status: Resident
Verified by: drerbium
Verified date: January 09, 2021
Coordinator notes: Very hard to distinguish from several Skippers like Little Glassywing when out of focus. Fortunately. This captures the fact that the FW are elongated and observer noted it is large. So I believe that confirms the ID.
