Submitted by: b.cn.u
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: windy, bright day, I chased this specimen for half a mile, flitting from one flowering plant to another, finally caught it and thought at first it was a Juvenal's Duskywing, but it's so dark, looked it up on CBIF website and this is the closest I get, (photos are staged for lighting and detail)
