I photographed this Butterfly yesterday, and think it is either a Persius Duskywing or Wild Indigo Duskywing, (neither of which seem to be on your website). I would be most grateful for your opinion. Thanks!
Thanks so much for submitting your image of a Duskywing Skipper in the genus Erynnis. Currently we have two species from the genus on our site, both from California. We do not feel confident taking an identification to the species level with any surety. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide a more definitive response.
