Thanks, Jellis. That site is really very good and I sometimes do refer to it. But skippers make me cross-eyes! I will sit down with them one day...and today I have got new glasses! Thanks again.

Looks like Oriental Contiguous Swift Polytremis lubricans. Many have the pattern on the forewing but few have the pattern on the hind wing.
this is a great site. http://www.ifoundbutterflies.org/sp/604/...
