European Skipper (Thymelicus lineola)

As the name implies, it is an introduced species in North America where it is spreading and is found across much of of eastern North America except for the southeast. It's spreading in the Rocky Mountains from the Canadian Rockies south to Wyoming. In NC, European Skippers are known only from only a few locations in the northern mountains, although suitable habitat is much more widespread. It flies in mid summer with a single brood.
