Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Tawny-edged Skipper
Class:Insecta Order:Lepidoptera Family:Hesperiidae Genus:Polites


I use the light colored band along the edges of the wings to identify these skippers. I know that there are also some spot/rectangle pattern that identifies them as Tawny-edged Skippers but I still can't tell them apart from Crossline Skippers and Baracoa Skippers.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
