Peto Skipper
Anastrus petius

Observation date: February 14, 2014
Submitted by: janazak
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: in low coastal scrub
Status: Stray
Verified by: Paul Prappas

Coordinator notes: In this region, Anastrus tolimus and neaeris are found. They both have blue sheens. However, the trailing bands of blue don't really match up with either of them. Seems to fit best with Anastrus petius peto, (Peto Skipper) which is found in nearby Guatemala. If that is the case, this will be considered a stray.
Checklist region(s): Mexico, Quintana Roo
