Yellow-barred skipper

Elbella iphinous

Description:

As in the photo.

Habitat:

Woodland track in a higher altitude nature reserve in South East Brazil Atlantic forest area. Altitude around 1800 m

Notes:

Apparently an uncommon high altitude endemic. The so-called common name I do not think is in normal usage but clearly someone has called it that!
