Grass Skipper - Orange Skipperling? - Oarisma edwardsii
Santa Fe Mountains, Santa Fe County, New Mexico, USA
June 30, 2016
The hind wing has an orange stripe along the margin and there are two dark stripes above and behind the eye.

Moved from Orange Skipperling.

Male
Moved from ID Request.

See Butterflies of America - Oarisma edwardsii
