Berry's Skipper (Euphyes berryi)

This is one of the rarest butterflies in NC, known only from a few coastal plain sites, and even in those sites, it's not found every year. It's probably two brooded and is more "common" (still quite rare) in late Aug/early Sep. It's found in marshy areas, swamp edges, and in wet savannah type habitats. Note the tawny-orange underside and paler veins.
