What is this tiny butterfly

Saluda, SC(Zone 8a)

Is this the correct identification for this?

It looks more like Painted Lady butterfly to me.

The photos I have seen of painted lady show pattern too distinct for this one; also it seems to be a much smaller size than the painted lady descriptions. You may be right, though.

^_^ We need more help on this one apparently. Have a good day gessieviolet.

It's a Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos).
