Crossline Skipper - Polites origenes - Female
Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA

This one has me stumped. I see similarities to Tawny-edged, Northern Broken-Dash, Dion, and Black Dash, but none of them seems quite right to me. I'd appreciate any thoughts, Thanks!

Crossline skipper
It looks like a fading Crossline skipper(male). Some of the orange
on the upper wings has faded. You can see the extra yellow spot on
the upper wings(in the center) which makes it a Crossline and not
a Tawny edge. It shows this in the Butterflies through Binoculars
The East guide.

 
Thanks, Gary
This is my first Crossline sighting! Thanks so much for your id :)
