Hesperiidae; Hesperiinae; Pelopidas sp. "Pelopidas is a genus of skipper butterflies. They are commonly known as branded swifts or millet skippers." Wikipedia.
I spotted this Skipper in our vegetable plot, nectaring on Sponge Gourd (Luffa acutangula) locally known as Patola. This plant seems to be very attractive to Skippers.
