From Wikipedia: "Atalopedes campestris (called the Sachem in the United States) is a small skipper). It is just over 1 inch long and is orange and brown. Females are slightly larger and have paler markings on the wings. Its host plants are various grasses, including lawn grasses. The caterpillar is dark green and black. It has multiple broods per year. This skipper is common from the southern United States to Brazil. It often ranges north to the northern states."

Skippers are often mistaken as moths, but they are butterflies.
