The Pugnacious Lancer, Pemara pugnans pugnans (de Nicéville)

This skipper is usually encountered in forested areas - at a glance it ressembles a Caltoris or a large Polytremis but this skipper is largely unmarked on the undersides in closed wings position and has a rather uniform rusty brown appearance.
