First Report of this Species in CR

The Butterflies and Moths dot com doesn’t even have this species included on their website yet (I’ve requested it!) and otherwise online I find it reported from Mexico, Guatemala and Nicaragua, so my photo may be the first reported of this species from Costa Rica (IF my identity is correct) 🙂 and this is not the first time for me to add a new species on that website! 🙂 I’ve found online two common names and two scientific names for what seems to be the same species of butterfly . . .

COMMON NAMES: Yellow-haired Skipper and Yellow-haired Pyramid-Skipper

SCIENTIFIC NAMES: Typhedanus cajeta cajeta and Cogia cajeta cajeta

This is not terribly unusual with so many species of butterflies and new ones being discovered or named every year. And I just wait to see what my supervisor at Butterflies and Moths dot com decides to do with it. 🙂

Yellow-haired Skipper, Atenas, Alajuela, Costa Rica

¡Pura Vida!
