UPDATE 25-Dec-2011: I recently sent my Common Checkered Skipper aberration -slash- Two-banded Checkered Skipper photo to BAMONA (Butterflies And Moths Of North America) and they verified it as the Common Checkered Skipper (Pyrgus communis). The other species update I previously posted here was the Spicebush Swallowtail, from a bad photo. I’ll keep this as a shaky sighting!

2011 BUTTERFLIES: 36
