Brown Longtail Skipper (Spicauda procne)
Like many skipper butterflies which are often brown or have dull or muted coloration, the brown longtail skipper is not usually recognized for what it is and often mistaken for a moth. This neotropical skipper is found all over Central America, Columbia and Peru, and in scattered populations across South America, particularly along the coast in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. In North America, its range extends into North America just into the south tip of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley, where this one was found and photographed near Weslaco, Texas.
