Hello,
I wonder if the id of this skipper is correct (Caltoris cormasa) ?
Notice the eyes are not red.

These brown skippers are difficult to id from live photo as most of the characteristics required for proper id are not visible in their natural pose. However, I don't think this is C. cormasa as cormasa has white spots on the forewings while no spots are visible in the skipper in your photo.

Where do you found the skipper? I bred Caltoris cormasa before, the skipper in your photo doesn't look like it.
