    Seems like this unid skipper might be a Taractrocera spp.. Doesn't seem to have hook on the antennae.

    Can post your shot? Any upperside view of the wings?

    I don't have complete upperside view for iding. All the shots that are useful are here.

    I'm suspecting Oriens gola pseudolus (Common Dartlet) (Pl 59, #7,8), but don't seems to have apiculus. Without proper upperview, very difficult to id. Common Dartlet is on the Sg checklist.
