The Poweshiek Skipperling was once a common sight on the prairies of Minnesota. However, by 2013 the 18 million acres of prairieland had then shrunk to about 1million acres. Now there are fewer than 500 of this species in the world.

Here I've created an imaginary prairie similar to the landscape where the Poweshiek Skipperling formerly were abundant.
