Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos) female
Kaufman Field Guide to Butterflies of North America
and
www.jeffpippen.com/butterflies/pearlcrescent.htm

Jeff Pippen has a link to the Silvery Checkerspot - noting that identification can "be a challenge"

www.jeffpippen.com/butterflies/silverycheckerspot.htm

Pearl Crescent is more common where I am in North Carolina and is smaller than the Silvery Checkerspot, though the underside of the wings are different in the two ..

Same butterfly photos taken over 2 days - there is a notch out of the right lower wing in some photos ..
