Edwards' Skipperling
Oarisma edwardsii

Observation date: July 23, 2023
Submitted by: tjay13
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Don't see the white veining pointing to Edwards's/Orange. Doesn't seem to have the orange leading edge of dorsal HW ruling out Orange (Glassberg). Incredible number of Butterflies around SF Canyon today. Most we have seen doing surveys for NM Butterfly Monitoring Network. Last year we struggled to get 18 individuals about half the time; today a quick count came up with 18 species on the route!
