I thought that this might be a Crossline Skipper or Northern Broken Dash at first because of the faint spots on the underside of the hindwing. I've seen hundreds of Tawny-edged Skippers in the past few weeks, but none of them have been this dark, and none have shown these faint spots on the hindwing. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
