Umber Skipper, Poanes melane 1471 - Poanes melane

Umber Skipper, Poanes melane 1471 - Poanes melane
Foothill Park, Palo Alto, Santa Clara County, California, USA
June 30, 2005
Size: ~30 mm
Male or female? This early summer specimen probably represents the first of the two flights of this species. Fall morph appears less distinctly marked overall; spots on forewing duller, not white as here; antennae darker (tentative observation). Will attempt to make a photographic record of both flights and genders in 09. Input of others appreciated, especially gender calls.
