Skipper - Clouded Skipper - Lerema accius - female

Skipper - Clouded Skipper - Lerema accius - Female
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
August 1, 2018
Size: Body ~15mm
Unfamiliar backyard Skipper. I'm confused and cannot identify it and would appreciate help. It's probably a common one and I won't mind if it's frassed.

.
Thank you, Ken and Cliff, for your help. Next time I'll know, I hope (Cliff - I must admit that you helped me before with this species here).

 
This specimen was difficult to ID
whereas the other one was very obvious. The forewing subapical band curves slightly outward, a single cell spot, and small limited eye ring. Usually small white ticks occur on the ventral leading edge of the forewing but I can't discern any. Also I have observed Eufala with a single spot in the cell rather than the usual two.

Moved from ID Request.

Eufala Skipper?
I don't know the southern skippers, but looks like it could be Lerodea eufala. A local expert should confirm.
