Very worn Coliadinae sp. - Abaeis nicippe

Very worn Coliadinae sp. - Abaeis nicippe
Athens, Clarke County, Georgia, USA

I usually see a sulfur and "think cloudy thoughts," but this one looked like it'd pose for a picture. I don't see the white wing spots I'd expect for a "cloudy" sulfur, so I'm not sure what to make of it. Is there enough left of this one for an ID?! It looks like even the tip of one of the antennae is broken off.

Moved from Sulphurs and Yellows.

Sleepy Orange (Abaeis nicippe) is correct.

Perhaps
Sleepy Orange (Abaeis nicippe)

or
Little Yellow (Pyrisitia lisa)

 
Those were the two ...
... I was leaning towards, but it's not Little Yellow. It lacks the two basal black spots on the hind wing. I think I like Sleepy Orange, but I'm definitely not certain. Thanks!
