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: MJ, your lovely photos do a great job of showing that Tropical Least Skipper has expended its range north into Sandoval County. this is a new record for Sandoval County and a northward range extension for this little skipper, which has previously been known along the Rio Grande from Bernalillo County south to El Paso. It may be a temporary colony, or perhaps it is now permanently established there. time will tell.
