Ancyloxypha arene

Observation date: October 03, 2021
Submitted by: Joshua C
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Single little skipper feeding from 2 clusters of asters. In between two ditches, either of which could be good habitat, since they both have vegetation on the edges of the water. I will be interested to see how long these stay in the area.
