Coordinator notes: Hi Pam, Your suggested identification on this skipper is correct! Great! I'll submit this record to the Lep Soc Season Summary for 2018 this week (deadline is 12/15). This is kind of late in the year so there actually could be three flights in that area which is visited very little all year long. One of my target areas if you read my blip in the skipper book ("Miles from Nowhere on p. 66). Hope you're doing well. Did your Moab property sell OK? Best regards, Mike
