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: Individual perched among gravel covering the Soledad Canyon Trail; gusting wind was strong above the trail, to 45mph. Only ventral wing surface images could be obtained. The afternoon was warm, under full sun, and windy.

Coordinator notes: Jim, this one has some wear, but I think if you check the field guides you'll see that the ventral markings are a dead ringer for Viereck's skipper. Texas R-S is a fair bit smaller, too.
