Long-tailed Skipper (Urbanus proteus)

Similar to Dorantes Longtail (Urbanus dorantes), Eight-spotted Longtail (Polythrix octomaculata) and White-striped Longtail Skipper (Chioides catillus), this skipper can be identified by the iridescent blue/green coloration of the body and inner area of the wings. I have seen them primarily in semi-shaded hillside areas, such as small meadows surrounded by trees or shrubs.
