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: On top of Little Bear Mountain, nectaring on Russian Thistle. Surrounded by a pinon woodland with Sideoats Gramma and other grasses. Warm and calm day.

Coordinator notes: Marta, in SW NM, I can't distinguish Viereck's from Deva Skipper without a dorsal photo. do you happen to have one? OK, I figured it out: HW fringe is gray (Viereck's), not white (Deva); I can see the FW white cell spot peeking over the HW costa. Good diagnosis!
