American Snout
Libytheana carinenta

Observation date: July 07, 2018
Submitted by: A_baldini
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Time: ~3:45 p.m. Weather: Hot, slightly breezy, and mostly sunny. Habitat: Nature trail behind a rest area consisting primarily of tall vegetation. Notes: These snouts were very common in the area, alongside some type of blue/azure. They mostly stayed on the dirt trail, flying along the ground similarly to a skipper, and one even landed on my father's shoe (probably trying to "nectar" through the holes)!
