Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
A very worn individual, but I'm fairly confident this is a Sachem, especially with that white dash on the forewing. They're very variable skippers.http://bugguide.net/node/view/9521http://www.rlephoto.com/skippers_grass2/...
These Grass Skippers are tough, but I think this is a Crossline Skipper - Polites origines.http://bugguide.net/node/view/13853The next best candidate is Tawny-edged Skipper - Polites themistocles.http://bugguide.net/node/view/4970 but I think the hindwing is too light for that.
Very nice !
