Pahaska Skipper
Hesperia pahaska

Observation date: July 07, 2019
Submitted by: Christian.Nunes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Lapping minerals at the bottom of a gully that recently experienced a "gully wash", so lots of wet mud. I'm basing my ID on the lack of overlap of the top two spots on the HW runs and the slight inward orientation of the bottom white spot of the post median band. I'm not certain it isn't H. viridis.
Status: Resident
