The first two photos of different individuals are, I think, Glassy-winged Skipper, Xenophanes tryxus and were both photographed at the REGUA reserve (Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu), SE Brazil in September 2013.

The second 2 photographs (sorry about the quality) are of the same individual. I'm wondering whether it might be a Blue-Skipper species and would welcome feedback. It was seen on the Theodora Trail, Tres Picos NP at ~1080m also in Sept 2013.

You're right on the first 2, Xenophanes tryxus. Your last 2 are Sostrata cronion, beautiful bug, too bad your shots are soft.
thanks,
k
