Pyrgus carthami - Safflower Skipper

Pyrgus-carlinae--carline-skipper | PTKbutterflies

I have rarely knowingly encountered this species. The white, elongated and tooth like hindwing upperside markings and the pale basal forewing dusting, are distinctive features. 

This butterfly image was taken in the Rhone Valley, with the help of a great friend.
