Duskys look small compared to other roadside-skippers.
This variable skipper is an inhabitant of roadsides in woods dominated by old-growth pines,
such as Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge, Rum Creek W.M.A. and Big Lazar W.M.A. I'm starting
to believe that they occur in clusters in appropriate habitat throughout our area.
During the last year I've seen about 12 individuals and although they are quite variable in the amount
of white spots above, the tips of their antennal clubs are shorter than other species of Roadsides.
