Skipper on Queen Anne's Lace - Calpodes ethlius
Shallow Ford Natural Area, Alamance County, North Carolina, USA

This skipper looked to be in rough shape based on the wing damage. Found nectaring on Queen Anne's Lace

Moved from Grass Skippers.

Probably Brazilian Skipper
based upon faint spot pattern on HW below, reddish brown ground color, wing veins, and abdomen appearance.
