Several white checkered-skippers were seen at the old parking area between the Morongo Preserve and Covington Park.
Tropical Checkered Skipper
Not to many of these guys.
Many around the insectary.
Pyrgus is a genus in the skippers butterfly family, Hesperiidae, known as the grizzled skippers. The name 'Grizzled Skipper' best describes this genus, but in some countries the name 'Checkered Skipper' or 'Chequered Skipper' is applied to some species. Strictly speaking, 'chequered skippers' applies to butterflies of the genus Carterocephalus.
