Roadside Skipper found in Scotts Bluff County

August 10 Colin Croft took a picture of a couple of Roadside Skippers (Amblyscirtes vialis) in a ravine in the Wildcat Hills in Scotts Bluff County where they had not previously been reported. Congratulations and a thank you to Colin. This butterfly is still unreported from roughly one third of Nebraska counties. While most common in the spring later generations can be found throughout the summer. So if you happen onto one in any of the counties still lacking records be sure to let us know at nebraskabutterflies@gmail.com. Colin also found a Western Branded Skipper (Hesperia colorado) that day. Every part of the state has it’s own unique flora and fauna but I’m always jealous of those who live where the Hesperia roam.
