Dreamy Duskywing
Erynnis icelus

Observation date: April 08, 2017
Submitted by: bjones7777
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I have been puzzling over this observation for some time, and I have come to the conclusion this is a Dreamy Duskywing based on the faint rings on the abdomen and long palps. It was also smaller than the other Sleepy Duskywings that were seen that same day, that is what made me follow it to take it's photo.
