Different View of Banded Skipper

Banded Skipper (Same one as two days ago)
Inside my house, Roca Verde, Atenas, Costa Rica

The one I posted two days ago (repeated below) that was on my living room screen is this same one above I believe. I found this one on the floor below the screen today. Many butterflies have short lives like that. But this view makes him look a lot different with the orange and white back wings showing. The white bars across the upper wings still make him like a banded skipper, but none in the books match nor any online. It is frustrating to not be able to label him! So maybe a new species?

I lightened or brightened this second photo which was a dark as the first right out of camera. But you can see the markings are the same on his upper wings.
