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

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 
colors - I think one would be grayish and the other tan. The borders on this 
individual look to be the same color.

Wish I had snapped another shot from above, but alas, I did not. Any comments 
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. 
did not know they were this far north.)
