Columbine Duskywing - Erynnis lucilius

Columbine Duskywing - Erynnis lucilius
Red Oak Prairie, Allamakee County, Iowa, USA
May 10, 2015
Thursday, May 7, 2015 Kyle Johnson saw several Columbine Duskywings at Red Oak. He said they were common.
Sunday, May 10, 2015 I went looking for them on Columbine, Aquilegia canadensis, their eggs and larvae.
I didn't see a single adult but I think I found eggs and larvae.
This egg had a head showing. By the time I got home and started photographing close-ups, the larva had emerged.
Another egg Another egg
June 2015: adults emerged
June 21, 2015: 2 adults, a male & a female, were vouchered by K Johnson. The others were set free at the site the eggs were collected.
