Holomelina opella - Virbia opella

Holomelina opella - Virbia opella
Lamson Road, Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA
June 23, 2007
Deep orange in flight. Flies like a skipper. In fact, looks somewhat like a skipper when landed. Clearly a moth, but, evidently, a skipper mimic.

Possibly
one of the tiger moths in genus Holomelina

 
Yes
Probably Holomelina opella
