Black Dash Skipper

Black Dash Skipper Black Dash Skipper (Euphyes conspicua)
Glacial Park, McHenry County, Illinois
July 17, 2004
This individual was caught during our 2004 summer workshop at Glacial Park. After Doug Taron removed it from the jar, it stayed on his hand for awhile. The view is of the underside of the right forewing. This might be hard to notice, but the skipper is holding its wings in the classic "airplane" position, so the right hindwing is pointing its edge toward the camera.
