Carolina Roadside-Skipper (Amblyscirtes carolina)

Uncommon and local in the NC coastal plain and rare and local in the southern NC piedmont, this is always a welcome sighting. They're generally found near cane (host plant) around wet areas and have three broods in the coastal plain. I've seen this species nectar on Prunella vulgaris, Eupatorium coelestinum, and Liatris spp.
