Calhoun 2017, Page 129, Figured of Erynnis icelus
"a female E. icelus that bears a small, handwritten label reading “Persius / bred” in Scudder’s hand (Fig. 1). It may be one of the specimens that Scudder reared in 1861, which he attributed to persius in Scudder (1888-1889). Scudder did not co-describe icelus until 1870, and some females of this species can be quite similar to females of persius."
