Coordinator notes: This one is Callophrys viridis, for whatever reason, BAMONA has not changed back the names per ICZN decision. Note more green on the forewing, I have seen both dumetorum and viridis submissions in San Francisco. Some believe they are conspecific.-Ken Davenport. Bamona has now corrected the names issue. Yours in the real Callophrys viris/the Coastal Green Hairstreak-Ken Davenport
