Carcharodus is a Palearctic genus of skippers in the family Hesperiidae.
This genus includes medium-sized, brown spotted skippers.
They are widespread in central and southern Europe, in North Africa and in temperate Asia from northern India up to southern Siberia.
These skippers can be found in meadows, trails and other sunny, warm locations. They fly in the sunshine and often visit flowers to drink nectar. The larvae feed on various herbs of several different plant families, including Malvaceae and Lamiaceae.Carcharodus alceae Esper, 1780
