This small orange skipper is most often seen in grassy areas containing clovers, which are used as a nectar source by the adults. They can be difficult to distinguish from other orange skippers. They have short, blunt, reddish antennae and a whitish fringe at the edge of the wing. They are not strong fliers and can easily be approached when feeding. They are most common during June. They are similar to the Delaware Skipper but are smaller and there is less black on the forewing.
