Hayhurst's Scallopwing

ID please
Daniel, I haven’t sent in a req. for ID in quite some time, but need a little help with this one…I believe it to be a type of Dusky Wing Skipper, but cannot find this exact one anywhere. Any help you can give will be most appreciated…=-)) Still visit often and wishing you and Lisa Anne a Merry Christmas and great Holiday Season….!

Hi Pat,
You are correct in thinking this is a Skipper, but it is not a Dusky Wing. It is Hayhurst’s Scallopwing, Staphylus hayhurstii. The larval food plant is lambsquarters.
