The Dingy Skipper butterfly is found in Britain and Ireland, but they are becoming rare. They have grey-brown wings with mottled brown markings and two rows of small white spots.
Dingy Skipper butterflies can be found on the bare ground during sunlight and on dead flowerheads in dull weather and at night. They have a wingspan of 29mm. They are fully protected under the Northern Ireland 1985 Wildlife Order.
