a very furry skipper
Here in the cordillera we have dozens of different skippers.
Since we are on the edge between the dry Northern lowlands and the humid atlantic north, we seem to get the grass and the forest skippers alike.
Identification seems near on impossible, my 3g internet connection and opening up every page on butterfliesofamerica are not compatible.
I have to admit I'm not an expert at all, even in France the Pyrginae were challenging.
Now if you guys tell me to stay clear with my skippers I will. If you feel like joining the challenge we could end up having a really good list of Costa Rican skippers,
PLEASE comment either way.
