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!
Observation notes: Never saw the ventral side of this worn individual. Considered similar species, such as Broad Banded-Skipper, but the FW bars match up best for Spike-banded. Should be more white edging on HWs, but this is a worn species, and FWs cover upper portion of HWs. The spike tapers at the lower end, and it's thinner than Broad-banded "neis". Last section on Broad-banded is outset. Apical spots don't match up for Sharp-banded Skipper "zarex"
