Brilliant Blue Skipper

Several of our companions on our Costa Rican dragonfly tour knew their butterflies. This butterfly is a Brilliant Blue Skipper, Paches loxus. I knew North American skippers tend to be black and brown and difficult to identify. We saw several species of azure skippers during our trip. Surprisingly the Brilliant Blue Skipper appears to have little Internet presence, aside from a few photographs and specimens. Thus, I can’t tell you much about it. Perhaps a butterfly expert would care to comment.
