Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. 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!
Observation notes: Barely visible in grasses and a plant that produces yellow flowers (not mustard), I initially thought this to be a spread-wing skipper of some sort. Very well camouflaged in the brush - only its gentle wing motion gave it away. It did not fly when approached.
