duskywing species - Erynnis - male

duskywing species - Erynnis - Male
Novi at the Novi wetlands complex north of 12-Mile Road, Oakland County, Michigan, USA
September 10, 2007
Size: unknown, but small
I found this small butterfly that looks like one of the duskywings. Could this be Columbine Duskwing (Erynnis lucilius) or Persius Duskywing (Erynnis persius)?

Perhaps Horace's Duskywing
Columbine would only be found in the spring, don't know much about Persius.

not Persius, but Wild Indigo or Columbine?
I copied the wrong info previously.... Could this be Columbine Duskwing (Erynnis lucilius) or Wild Indigo Duskywing (Erynnis baptisiae)?
