Description

Based on dark fringe on forewing to the apex, blue-gray scaling in middle of the critter, and marginal spots on hind wing about the same size as submarginal spots, I'm calling this Tropical Checkered. Shows to be of common occurrence in this part of Florida in fall.

Description from Wikipedia

Pyrgus is a genus in the skippers butterfly family, Hesperiidae, known as the grizzled skippers. The name 'Grizzled Skipper' best describes this genus, but in some countries the name 'Checkered Skipper' or 'Chequered Skipper' is applied to some species. Strictly speaking, 'chequered skippers' applies to butterflies of the genus Carterocephalus.
