Columbine Duskywing
Erynnis lucilius

Observation date: October 07, 2020
Submitted by: p_stritch
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Jeff Glassberg's book says that Columbine & Wild Indigo Duskywings are difficult to tell apart, but if you find it on the host plant, that's a good indication. This one seemed to be laying eggs on Columbine.
