Inky Skippers are very dark little butterflies that fly rapidly, close to the ground. They are found on dry grasslands, in dried-up riverbeds, on rocky slopes, and in woodland clearings. They can often be seen basking in the sun, wings widespread, on light-coloured stones. Especially the females can also often be seen drinking nectar on Thyme. The Inky Skipper has one or two broods a year.
