I would also go with a Northern. Road kill armadillos are a daily sighting around here if you do any country driving during the summer. I've seen 2 live ones on the road at night and it's easy to see why so many get killed by cars. They are completely oblivious to traffic.

If it's a Broken-Dash (I don't seem to be able to find anything definitive to identify these similar skippers), I'd say it's a Northern. Southern would be more reddish-brown and the borders of the fore and hind wings would be different colors - I think one would be grayish and the other tan. The borders on this individual look to be the same color. David Trently Avian Pursuits Nature Tours ...come see the real world!

Wish I had snapped another shot from above, but alas, I did not. Any comments as to whether this is reddish-brown or yellow-brown? Saw it yesterday at Hidden Lake near Pegram, where I also saw a dead armadillo in the road along Hwy 70. (I did not know they were this far north.) Rita Venable, Franklin, TN Williamson Co.
