Horace's Duskywing
Erynnis horatius

Observation date: April 07, 2024
Submitted by: DeepSkyKelly
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I'm suggesting Horace's (male?) because of the white spot at the tip of the cell, brown fringes, and the dark/light pattern of marginal spots on the hindwing.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: I agree, although they're quite variable and these Erynnis sp. are difficult to separate. Looks right, though.
