Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stomlins701
Verified date: October 07, 2013
Coordinator notes: Base on the photos in "Butterflies through Binoculars--the East", this looks like Yehl Skipper. I ruled out the similar-looking Broad-winged Skipper based on the partial view of spots on the hindwing underside.
