Moved from ID Request.

Looks like
Poanes hobomok. P. zabulon wouldn't show dark veins on the hindwing patch.
Shots of the underwing are generally very helpful for IDing skippers (even if they are sometimes a mess to get!)

 
You aren't telling me

I chased this little critter in circles trying to get a folded wing shot and it totally refused. Thanks for your help!
