I agree bayucca, I would think silvery also, if I had to pick between the two.

I slightly would tend to Chlosyne nycteis due to the white spots, although I only can see one. Nycteis is to my knowledge the only Checkerspot with white spots on the hindwing. What do you think, Livan?

This looks like a Checkerspot (Chlosyne sp.) I'm thinking Gorgone or Silvery. Look through these:
