Garita Skipperling
Oarisma garita

Observation date: July 10, 2020
Submitted by: DeepSkyKelly
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I originally guessed Orange Skipperling because the color when it opened its wings was light orange, but there's no black edging on the wings. I settled on Garita Skipperling because of white edging and whitish veins, and because I saw more Garitas in the area that did appear darker inside.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: That's a good job by you! Orange Skipperling also would be way out of range in that location.
