Hickory Hairstreak - Satyrium caryaevorus
I think this is the Hickory. Similar to the Banded.
- The blue HW spot extends far past the orange spot above it, into the wing.
- higher ratio of black to orange in the hw spot, no orange on adjacent spots
- spots on both HW and FW postmedian band get progressively wider from bottom to top, top spot as side as central spot (partial band)

An article about id'ing these two similar species is here:

Ah! We received an email that said
this was not a Striped. But we didn't find out what it was. We're horrible at these :(
