Deva Skipper
Atrytonopsis deva

Observation date: May 31, 2022
Submitted by: stevecary
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: several were seen, often nectaring; gray VHW fringe suggested maybe vierecki, so I tried patiently to get a DFW shot showing the presence/absence of pale, post-discal hourglass spot, but only succeeded in the last one, which was not focused, but shows no such spot; so I conclude deva, despite the dingy VHW fringe
