Cogia caicus

Observation date: August 26, 2017
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Not positive on this ID. A rather worn individual. I thought this might be an Acacia Skipper, but the costal edge is golden. The banding on the UHW also seems to fit Gold-costa....Seen along the trail in upper Miller Canyon.
