Silver-spotted Skipper

Epargyreis clarus

Description:

Epargyreis clarus. Silver-spotted skipper is very common in eastern North America. Mostly a mottled brown color, but when its wings are closed up, a large white-silver patch can easily be seen on the lower hingwings. Open flat, their wings have a yellow band running parallel to the body on both forewings. Their antennae are slightly bent or curved at the tips, not completely stiff and straight.

Habitat:

This silver-spotted skipper was spotted in a beautiful flower garden at Hillwood Gardens, Washington, DC.
