Hi Martha,

This is looking to me more like Little Glassywing (Pompeius verna). It's got the squarish white box in the middle of the forewing and it appears to have whitish scaling at the base of the antenna clubs. Female Dun Skippers have smaller, sharper spots on the forewing. I recognize this individual is quite worn, but I often see a faded dark yellowish-green cast to the head on Dun Skipper.

Best,
Bryan

I think this is a Dun Skipper.  Would appreciate any comments regarding ID.
