Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Red-banded Hairstreak
Class:Insecta Order:Lepidoptera Family:Lycaenidae Genus:Calycopis


I started seeing this butterfly in September and couldn't get a picture of it to save my life. It was constantly darting away right at the point that I would discover it. I finally caught it on some Heath Asters in late September and later the same day on some Goldenrod.

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