I believe this is a crossline skipper based on the low contrast between the hindwing and forewing color below. All of the tawny-edged skippers I've seen show a very strong contrast between the hindwing and forewing colors below. I'd appreciate an expert opinion before moving to the appropriate guide page. Thanks.
