Pacuvius Duskywing
Erynnis pacuvius

Observation date: July 22, 2022
Submitted by: Rozelle Wright
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Mostly sitting with closed wings on a slightly bigger rock than the surrounding damp pebbles on the dry stream bed. Occasionally flew up and landed on the stream bed and spread its wings, but I was unable to get a well focused picture of the open wings in good light. I have appended a rather poor photo of the open wings as well as one with partly open wings, and one with closed wings.
