Broad-winged Skipper - Poanes viator

Broad-winged Skipper - Poanes viator
Herring Run Park, Baltimore City County, Maryland, USA
July 9, 2011
Observed on Teucrium canadense.

Id confirmed by Dick Smith/BAMONA. In a personal email communication, he said, "Yes! Broad-winged Skipper. This coastal marsh species is a likely butterfly for Baltimore City because of the Inner Harbor, but I do not recall anyone reporting it in Baltimore City in 30 years. The original record is probably historical (pre-1980's) from the old Opler Eastern U.S. county-city records."
