Woodland Skipper, Ochlodes sylvanoides

One third of all North American butterflies belong to the family of skippers. They are generally small with short wings and thick bodies.

The Woodland Skipper is widespread from British Columbia and the western states across to Arizona. It belongs to the sub-family of Grass Skippers. We find it in woodlands and grassy areas and a regular visitor to gardens. It is only about 1 inch/2.5 cm long.

Learn more about butterflies and moths by visiting our Bug Guide.
