Observation notes: Saw it sitting on dried grass in Davidson Mesa Open space, Louisville, CO. Flew away as soon as I took picture. Fairly small, maybe an inch across, but hard to tell since wings weren't completely open.

Coordinator notes: Although many skippers use grasses as host plants, this skipper belongs to the group (Subfamily Pyrginae) that use broad leaf plants for hosts. This ones uses Mallow, a common "weed" found around yard and garden areas - a usually small, low growing but bushy plant with round-shaped leaves. I'm sure you have seen it.........Mike
