Hermit Skipper
Grais stigmaticus

Observation date: October 25, 2017
Submitted by: ursgeiser
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: First found by another observer who alerted the many experts present in the center at that time, and I followed them to the butterfly. Most of the time it hung out in the shade, but for a few minutes it fed in the sun, as in one of the attached photo (both are of the same individual).
