This skipper is found in extreme south Texas. Can usually be seen around resacas and seasonally flooded habitats. Prefers to perch with wings closed. Flies from Spring to Fall and has 2 to 3 broods annually. Forewings are narrow and pointed. Topside (dorsal view) brown with three to four tiny white spots forming a row near the forewing tip. Underside (ventral view) is mottled brown, white with purplish basal and postmedian bands.

Larval host plant: Black Mimosa (Mimosa pigra)
