Pacuvius Duskywing
Erynnis pacuvius

Observation date: June 12, 2021
Submitted by: guy_incognito
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was favoring this plant, which I believe is caenothus? Maybe on the smaller side, although I don't have experience with Pacuvius to really know what size they should be. It was certainly smaller than Edith's. Perhaps it might be similar to a larger blue such as Greenish Blue or Boisduval's (if they spread their wings).

Coordinator notes: That's what it looks like, we obviously can't check the genitalia or do DNA from a photo, so this is tentative-Ken Davenport
