General Description

Superficially similar to the other checkered skippers, but this little skipper (wingspan 16 - 22 mm) inhabits only prairie habitat, along with the Common Checkered Skipper (P. communis). In addition to its smaller size, the white markings of scriptura are much smaller than those of communis.
