Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Coordinator notes: After a long deliberation over what this is, examination of specimens and images in books, the closest I can get is Dion Skipper, a very rare find in Rhode Island, I believe only one of two known from the state. The plain, unspotted hindwing with just a shadow of a light ray, and the spot on the forewing makes me think this is Dion. I was thinking it might be an aberrant Broad-winged Skipper, but I've not seen any like this, that look like Dion. [Misidentification flags are welcome with convincing reasoning]
