Your letter to the bugman: Hello,
Can you identify this butterfly? It looks like some type of skipper to me, but it’s not in my butterfly guide.
How you want your letter signed: Linda Taylor
This is indeed a Skipper. When it comes to identifying Grass Skippers in the family Hesperiinae to the species level, we are woefully insecure, and we rarely attempt to drill down to the species level as so many members of the subfamily look so similar. See BugGuide for images of the some possibilities.
