Abstract The Rare Skipper is well named: apart from the New Jersey side of the Delaware Bay, it is rare throughout its limited range. Scattered populations can be found in brackish river marshes and abandoned rice paddies along the Atlantic Coast from New Jersey to Georgia. Little is known of the life history of this butterfly. Threats are not documented, but it is probable that spraying for mosquito control is a potential threat in marsh areas, as are development and recreation activities.
