Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Warm but overcast and foggy day with occasional sun breaking through. Saw several of these butterflies in the grassy section of the coastal dunes west of the Haul Rd. First time I've found them at this location. I believe these two to be a female and male. Male was still but female would occasionally twitch it's wings.
