Coordinator notes: Doesn't look like Burnsius oileus to me. This is in an area where Burnsius communis and albescens are both likely to be found (and yes, B. oileus as well), and these two sp. can't be distinguished from each other using photographs. Note - taxonomy now places all three of these sp. in Pyrgus.
