Horace's Dusky Wing
Horace's Dusky Wings are usually associated with forest edges but will come into open areas to obtain nectar. They also are known to visit damp soil. The eggs are laid on oaks. Males tend to be brown with a faint pale spot near the end of the forewing cell. Females are more variable in color and have large white spots on the forewing as well as a spot at the end of the forewing cell. Both sexes are similar in appearance to other dusky wings, especially Juvenal's Dusky Wing. Juvenal's Dusky Wings fly primarily from April through June so specimens seen in late summer with a white spot near the end of the cell are most likely Horace's Dusky Wing.
