Levantine Skipper (again)!

Scores of levantine skippers where seen flitting across the garrigue above the Nimborio road. Feeding on grasses, this tiny butterfly with a wingspan of less than 28mm is one of 230 species found across Greece. That compares with the UK's 55 species. If anybody knows how many there are on Symi, please let me know!
