These are butterflies in the family Hesperiidae that I have recorded on Isla Colon. Each specimen includes collecting data and observations I have made over years of visits to the island.
Centruoides scorpion, July 2013
This scorpion fell from the ceiling of the research center onto the cutting board where Rosa was chopping up chicken for the evening meal. It's carrying a brrod of young on its back.
The white "fluff" on the scorpion's back is likely the cast-off skin of a recently molted immature.
