Some kind of Grass Skippers (Hesperiinae) - Hylephila phyleus
Sanford, Lee County, North Carolina, USA
October 2, 2005
I found this critter on a Blue Mist Flower (Eupatorium coelestinum) in my back yard today. From searching the butterfly images I've gathered that it's at least part of the Grass Skippers (Hesperiinae) subfamily, but does anyone know what species it is? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
