Camoflauge Butterfly - Anaea andria

Camoflauge Butterfly - Anaea andria
Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas, USA

Extremely camoflauge on the underside. On the top, is a bright orange color (I'm not sure of any design on the topside, for it would only open its wings while flying). Rather weak flier, if that helps at all. Thank you for your help.

It looks like it might be the Goatweed Leafwing. The tail is broken off, but it doesn't seem to have the small second tail of the Tropical Leafwing.
