Sleepy Dusky Wing (Erynnis brizo)
The Sleepy Dusky Wing is most often encountered along wooded roads and trails. These were photographed near the dormitories on the south end of the Kenyon Campus. The specimen on the left is shown basking on a gravel road with its wings spread. This is the normal posture. Only the Sleepy and Dreamy Dusky Wings lack white spots on the forewing (see Juvenal's Dusky Wing for comparison) and have a chain-like band on the outer quarter of the forewing. In the photo on the right the wings are folded and it is possible to see the spotted pattern on the hindwing.
