Small butterfly, About 3 cm wingspan.
Opening in an oak forest.
Well bayucca, I'm very thank full for your help IDing this new butterfly for me.
It is not possible to ID this one without the native specimen. I am not sure if a ventral view really would be safe. I think my suggestion is a valuable compromise.
Pyrgus scriptura or Pyrgus communis. This is only a suggestion - of course there are experts who could really pinpoint the exact ID for this spotting.
Thanks, I will have a closer look later.
No, but I know skippers hard to shot...
Bayucca, I just up loaded another closer look. I hop it helps.
My first guess is still: Pyrgus sp., it might either be Pyrgus communis or Pyrgus albescens, however, these two can't be separated by picture only.
Than you bayucca for the ID. Sorry no ventral shot, you know butterflies, hard to shot.
Easy one: Pyrgus sp.. Heavy one: species? Tricky for IDing, any other shot of the ventral side?? Try to get closer...
