Nat a great shot, but can you still ID?

female Fiery
Moved from Grass Skippers.

For sure, it's a grass skipper. But which?
Here's the list for Marion County:

Crossline Skipper (Polites origenes)
Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus)
Leonard's Skipper (Hesperia leonardus)
Northern Broken-Dash (Wallengrenia egeremet)
Sachem (Atalopedes campestris)
Zabulon Skipper (Poanes zabulon)

Hope this helps, at least a little. I don't have all these in my book and am bad on Skipper ID anyhoo.
