Ghost Skipper

Phanus sp.


These cuties come often inside the house. They usually hang out on my garden flowers in the day time. I specially love this one because of the many clear windows it has.Just love the pattern.

This is a Phanus sp.. But I cannot really go down to species level on a sae base. Too many similar around. However, I can kick out some of them:
NOT: Vitreus, Ecitonorum, Confusis, Albiapicalis, Rilma
Candidates: Grandis, (Obscurior, lines narrow and slim, yours are broader), Marshalli.
