Identified by Sharon Stichter on 2014-08-29
Nature of ID: expert ID
Remarks: "a lot of the 'brizo' specimens had an alternative identification of 'baptisiae' They are labelled 'det. J. M. Burns 1964' but it's not clear what he determined them as. They all look like Erynnis baptisiae to me, not Erynnis brizo."
