Observation date: May 31, 2013
Submitted by: SteveC
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: My memory of it now is a little sketchy after 5 years. But I remember it was a quite large skipper, certainly much larger than any we get in the UK or Europe! It was basking in sun immediately after a torrential downpour and didn't move from this position so I was unable to get shots of the hind underwing.
