Harry’s advent calendar of insects, day 9: Tarsoctenus papias

Just a pretty butterfly today.

I don’t know anything about Tarsoctenus papias, really, except that it’s a species of skipper from south America. I found it while browsing the amazingly, intimidatingly comprehensive website Butterflies of America.
