Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I saw several of these on a series of shrubs along the lower trail on the north side of Tortugas Mountain. The trail was not far from and parallel to Dripping Springs Road. The butterflies clearly had green eyes and would feed sometimes close to Gray Hairstreaks. This was the first time I have ever seen this species.
