I can't find a better fit
I think this is correct. The antennae, pattern on the hind wing, posture, shape of wings, etc. all seem good. It is (apparently) from a bit far north, but not unbelievably so, and there is another posted from not much further south.

Looks like Three-spotted skipper
Small subapical spotband that bends outward and an apparent faint spotband in the disc of FW above.
Neamathla skipper may be similar above.
