Grass Skipper from Australia

Hi Bugman,
I found this moth in our garden last weekend. We live in Perth, Western Australia. It was fairly small (approx. 200mm long). I couldn’t get a phot of the wingspan. What is it?> By the way, great website! I love taking photos of insects, so you might get a few more queries from me.

Hi Anna,
This is not a moth. It is a Grass Skipper, a butterfly in the subfamily Hesperiinae.
