Hesperia pahaska

Observation date: June 13, 2009
Submitted by: Christian.Nunes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: In a sandy wash. This could be the same individual as record 1199532, but I can't quite recall.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: This is the Pahaska Skipper. Western Colorado in Mesa, Delta and Montrose County has subspecies near martini which on male is often very fulvous on the upperside but vary to darker borders. The locality as I mentioned before is not where the Nevada Skipper would be found. Read about both skippers in BOC 6. Mike
