Northern Broken-Dash (Wallengrenia egeremet)

Along with Little Glassywing and Dun Skipper, N. Broken-Dash is known as one of the "witches". Identification can be challenging depending on the amount of scale wear on the individual. For N. Broken-Dash, note the "3" shape of the post-median spot band in the ventral hindwing and the lack of a white patch below the antennal club.
