Ochlodes venata

Ochlodes venata is a skipper butterfly species in the family Hesperiidae. The name was long used for the large skipper of Europe, but it actually refers to its Far Eastern sister species and the large skipper is now called O. sylvanus. There is some dispute however about whether the large skipper should not better placed in O. venata as a subspecies sylvanus or faunus.

These two skippers are possibly sympatric in China. Ochlodes venata occurs from there eastwards to Korea and Japan.
