Butterfly sighting

Jun 3

Pamela Skaar, Ginny and Bill Nelson

Location: Yahara Heights County Park
Dane County

14:00 - 15:07, 1.2 miles. 68 F. S wind 10 mph. We saw a dark black lepidopteran with a large white spot on the hind wing. It was about the size of a silver-spotted skipper but it was not flying like one, fluttering and more like a moth. Neither Ginny nor I could find it in the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of NE America.
