Common Checkered-Skipper and Allies Complex Burnsius communis

White Checkered-Skipper and Common Checkered Skipper cannot be separated with photos. Dissection of the male genitalia is required. See:
https://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Pyrgus-communis
or
https://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Pyrgus-albescens
under the "Identification” section, or any field guide.
In areas where both species occur, such as San Antonio, we are left with genus level IDs.
