Large chequered skipper - Heteropterus morpheus

Family: Hesperiidae

Flight Time: June - July

Size: 32-38mm

Altitude: 0-1000m

The most spectacular Skipper by a long way. Coupled with the very dark uppersides it is distinctive in flight. It is a central European butterfly.

No risk of confusion with any other species in Europe. Their peculiar bobbing flight alone is enough to identify them.
