Dear friends

Last Sunday, March 31th, our Ricardo or Richard Lindstrom died due to a brain hemorrhage.

All of as have known him as a profound expert of neotropical butterflies specially the Hesperiidae. For me he was always my Master of Skipper.

Let us keep him in our hearts. We are grateful for all his IDs and fruitfull discussion.

Our thoughts and prays are with his wife Shirley Sekarajasingham and the whole family.

For a last time: ¡Saludos Ricardo!

Regards
Dominik aka bayucca

Thanks for posting this, Dominik. Yes, I will miss Dr. Skippy very much, he was a great travel buddy. He and I did several extended trips chasing skippers in many countries. I may not have always agreed with his id's, but it was a lot of fun to debate with him. He was always happy to look at skipper photos, and he showed me many things about the hesperiidae.

My deepest sympathies to Shirley.
