Observation date: October 26, 2017
Submitted by: ursgeiser
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I am not sure about the ID. The expected skipperling in the area would be Southern Skipperling, but I don't see the characteristic marks of that species. I also can't think of any other candidate species that wouldn't be even more out of range.
