Dion Skipper

Dion Skipper Dion Skipper (Euphyes dion)
Female
Note that the dorsal forewing costal edge is bright orange, as well as a little orange in the discal cell. This isn't always true for the female. We can still distinguish this skipper from the male because the postmedial band of orange spots is not as broad as the male.
