I received a nice email this morning from Robert Brown who had just got back to his home in Alberta from his first trip to Cuba. He has sent me some beautiful photos, taken at Cayo Coco on the north coast, which I have now added to the website, including two of Zestos Skipper Epargyreus zestos. It has been know to occur here since the 1990's and is also known from a couple of places just to the west of here but that is all.
He also saw and got pictures of a male Orange-barred Sulphur Phoebis philea. In my experience this is not an easy species to photograph, in fact I've never even got near one, so Robert did very well to get not just an underside but also a dorsal view just as it flew away. Well done Robert and many thanks. So that means there are just twenty species that are not yet featured here.
