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: I think this is either a Viereck's skipper or Oslar's Roadside skipper, I'm not certain which. The habitat description for both species in Glassberg matches this canyon. This was seen at the beginning of the seep area at Embudito canyon. It never fed, it just perched on various rocks. Very cute butterfly, and whatever it is its a lifer for me.

Coordinator notes: good work on the diagnosis, Joshua. Viereck's will be bigger, more angular.
