Size: 2 cm
I had tentatively identified these as a pair if Fiery Skippers (Hylephila phyleus), then I got a top-view picture of one of the pair (see second picture) (male or female?) and I began to wonder if I was on the wrong track. Any help is appreciated.

Shouldn't these be moved to Fiery Skippers (Hylephila phyleus)

Fiery Skippers
No doubt about it - you have a pair of Fiery Skippers. The one on the left is a female, the one on the right is a male. Nice shots!
