Clouded/ Fawn-Spotted..? - Cymaenes trebius

Clouded/ Fawn-Spotted..? - Cymaenes trebius
National Butterfly Center, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA

I had initially pegged this as a Clouded Skipper. The apical spots curving outward seem right, yet the VHW patterning seems odd for Clouded, more like a Fawn-spotted. I know that Violet-banded should have a dark spot near the costal edge of the HW, though the angle and lighting make that difficult for me to determine. The fringe color also seems wrong for Clouded...
