Green Skipper
Hesperia viridis

Observation date: June 08, 2019
Submitted by: Christian.Nunes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: A mating pair. I believe the male is the one facing downward, female upward. These two were on a broad ridge, but wide enough to have features that a skipper could consider a "gully"?
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: You can see on these two how close together the spots in the anterior (upper) band are and quite typical of H. viridis and not so much pahaska. Mike
