Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Banded Hairstreak
Class:Insecta Order:Lepidoptera Family:Lycaenidae Genus:Satyrium

I thought this was an Edwards' Hairstreak or Red-banded Hairstreak. A friend of mine consulted "A Photographic Field Guide to the Butterflies in the Kansas City Region" by Betsy Betros and determined that it was a Banded Hairstreak.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
