Abstract

In February 2020, an image of a skipper butterfly posted on iNaturalist by Dempewolf (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/38797379) was spotted by Cock as a species new to the Trinidad fauna. The image was shared, and rapidly identified as Microceris dulcinea (Plötz, 1879) by Olaf H.H. Mielke, and this was confirmed from the Butterflies of America website (Warren et al. 2017).
