Esmeralda Longtail Skipper

This little blue-tinged skipper butterfly died in my house the other day and as frequently happens, was another new species for me. I’ve seen a lot of Skippers, as you can see in my Butterfly Gallery of over 100 species now, but never this one before. He can be seen from Mexico to Peru one website says, though I can’t find much detailed information on the species. I identified him through my trusty guide book:  A Swift Guide to Butterflies of Mexico and Central America, second edition. 

“The joy of discovery is certainly the liveliest that the mind of man can ever feel.”
— Claude Bernard
