Coordinator notes: The figure for this species in "A Swift Guide to the Butterflies of Mexico and Central America" (2007) by Glassberg, p. 47, shows the white-edge pm line of crescents extends on the undersides of both upper and lower wings. Based on that characteristic, I believe this is Strymon rufofusca. SAT
