First glimpse I thought it was a Red Admiral, but there is no red on those wings and the pattern is wrong. If it is some kind of skipper I haven't found its picture.

Anyone know it?

I found it. It's a Silver-spotted Skipper, Epargyreus clarus: http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/gallery?stage=All&species...

Thumbs up

(Actually, a friend of mind called it, so I thought I'd better come in here and mark this thread 'done'. )
