Hoary Edge (Achalarus lyciades)

Generally uncommon but widespread in NC, Hoary Edge has a spring brood and a summer brood. From above, Hoary Edges can be distinguished from the similar Silver-spotted Skipper because the former has a cluster of large, gold spots in the center of the wing that tightly surround a small brown spot. Silver-spotted Skippers lack this pattern.
