Dusky-blue Groundstreak
Calycopis isobeon

Observation date: October 05, 2018
Submitted by: wallap74
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found and tentatively identified by Brad Moon. Although this location is at the edge of the range of Dusky-blue Groundstreak, the thinness of the pm band and the orange cap on the black hindwing spot indicate this species.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stomlins701
Verified date: October 14, 2018
Coordinator notes: I agree with the submitter, the characteristics are more C. isobeon than cecrops. Southeast TX and Southwest LA seem an intergrading area with sightings of both species.
