Caption: Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Woodland skipper butterfly compound eye and proboscis (Ochlodes sylvanoides). (Ochlodes sylvanoides). Skippers exhibit some moth-like traits and some butterfly-like traits. Like moths, they have stocky, hairy bodies. Like butterflies, they have knobs at the ends of their antennae (although a recurved filament protrudes). And they hold their wings simultaneously flat as do moths (the hind wings) and folded up over the body as do butterflies (the fore-wings). Magnification: x17 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
