Woodland Skipper
Ochlodes sylvanoides

Observation date: August 24, 2018
Submitted by: jetboulder@aol.com
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Sorry for multiple submissions. I liked this photo that is very similar to the last skipper I submitted, but this is a different individual. This one on grass, with odd looking curve to top of antennae.
Status: Resident

Verified date: October 27, 2018
Coordinator notes: Yes, also like the last, a male Woodland Skipper. The "curved" end of the antenna is known as the apiculus. It is characteristic to the antennae on most of the skippers. Mike
