Pacuvius Duskywing
Erynnis pacuvius

Observation date: June 10, 2021
Submitted by: Harry Forbes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Steve....The brown patches on the forewing and the white fringe on the hindwing suggest this species to me. You are the final arbiter and I have been wrong on Duskywings before, which I find most difficult to ID. This one was mudding at the edge of a small creek. No underwing shots are available.
