Laviana White-Skipper
Heliopetes laviana

Observation date: July 20, 2017
Submitted by: TCollins
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: While participating in Love Creek NABA Count, saw this little white butterfly being chased by a Checkered-White Skipper. Got one picture, then netted and bagged it to help confirm initial identification as a Laviana White-Skipper. I had two in our yard (Center Point) last year that will be reported later.
