Persius Duskywing
Erynnis persius

Observation date: June 20, 2021
Submitted by: NBBAM
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: July 24, 2021
Coordinator notes: Your ID is correct...I had another sighting I verified earlier as the Persius Duskywing from the same date but with a much different number assigned to it so I verified this one. One follows again from same date as your submission I have to presume is from the same location (as explained earlier). That one I have to reject unless you let me know it was from a substantially different location. Note: Submission from the same location next year will be fine. I'd probably accept one from the following week too as that helps establish how long a species flies at the same place. Mike
