Uncas Skipper
Hesperia uncas

Observation date: July 12, 2018
Submitted by: Janeal W. Thompson
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Seen on shasta daisies, (Leucanthemum x Superbum 'Alaska')
Status: Resident
Verified by: A_baldini
Verified date: March 09, 2019
Coordinator notes: Correct ID; the Uncas Skipper seems to have had an unusually abundant flight in 2018. The other similar species in your county, the Green Skipper, tends to have more disconnected spots on the ventral side, not forming a continuous "V"-shape like in the Uncas Skipper.
