Visually close to the Fiery Skipper. The dark spots atop the forewing are larger and the spackles on the outside are more prominent. In Arkansas this skipper is a wanderer only from the extreme southern margin of the state. This individual was photographed in Florida.

Shot showing the sparser and larger spots on the male compared to the male Fiery. The female is dusty and gray with spots. Picture from Mel White.
