GEGENES PUMILIO - PYGMY SKIPPER




Amaseno, Lazio, Italy.. 21.08.2022


Amaseno, Lazio. 21.08.2022
The lucerne field where these butterflies were feeding. 06.08.22. and 21.08.22


Amaseno, Lazio, 06.08.2022. Confirmation appreciated! Pygmy Skippers (G. pumilio) or Mediterranean Skippers (Gegenes nostrodamus)? The butterflies photographed above were all in the same field and present from 04.08.22.to 21.08.22. My identification is based on the 3 white costal spots on the underside of the forewing (not so clear on the photos from 06.08.22.)
