Ilavia Hairstreak
Satyrium ilavia

Observation date: September 11, 2022
Submitted by: ncrosbyrd
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: We were shocked when we saw the appearance as we had not expected it to be so brown! We would have never found this hairstreak without help of experts Bill Beck and Jim Brock! We hiked at least 1/2 mile up a mountain to find just the right tree and finally locate one up there!
