Skipper - Hylephila phyleus

Skipper - Hylephila phyleus
Larkspur, Marin County, California, USA

Seen in a grassy area near an apartment complex.

Fiery Skipper female
Moved from ID Request.

Hi Cliff, This is a general comment, FYI, about fiery at Bug
Guide: When I put Hylephila phyleus in the "Search" box I get "Matching images" of (mostly)fiery, but for "Matching guides" I get only Sachem, Atalopedes campestris. Can you or someone fix this?

Hi Skip. I sometimes have the same issue
when doing species searches. Since I don't know the fix, I just click on an image to get to guide level for species.

I know how to get to the guide level, but not everyone does.
Shouldn't we try to get this corrected for the sake of those who might be misled and confused? An I.D. site should not exist solely for those in the know.

Thank you, Cliff!


Did you mean "(southern) broken dash?" Alas, they aren't found in California.
