The Large Skipper is a butterfly of the Hesperiidae family, which occurs throughout Europe. It was long known as ''Ochlodes venata'', but this is a Far Eastern relative. There is still some dispute whether this species should be considered a distinct species or included in ''O. venata'' as a subspecies.
