Skipper - Erynnis lucilius

Skipper - Erynnis lucilius
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
October 1, 2015
Size: ~ 3 cm wingspan
Juvenal's or Horace's Duskywing? Thank you.

Columbine Duskywing female
Horace's is out of range and the solid dark greasy appearing basal area of the dorsal forewings indicates Columbine duskywing.
Horace's females have a mottled forewing basal area. Some Columbine exhibit a white cell end spot as does Horace's.
Also lacks the large white area at the proximal base of the eyes which Horace's usually shows.
Moved from Horace's Duskywing.

Moved from ID Request.

Juvenal's flight is in the Spring
Thus Horace's Duskywing but at edge of range.
