Red-Banded Hairstreak

Red-Banded hairstreak

The Red-Banded hairstreak has a bright hindwing pattern.

The Red-Banded Hairstreak (Calycopis cecrops).

Admittedly, this is a terrible photo, but it does do a good job of displaying the very pronounced banded markings on the hindwing of the Red-Banded Hairstreak.

This is the only photo I have of one, and I wasn’t really sure I caught anything different from my usual hairstreaks until I got home and looked at the photo.

My only experience was in October, so I am thinking it is a late season species. Hopefully I can see more with future trips to provide a little more info.
