Hairstreak species? - Satyrium saepium

Hairstreak species? - Satyrium saepium
Diamond Lake, Highway 2, Pend Oreille County, Washington, USA
July 12, 2019
Size: 3/4-1 inch
I observed this brownish, beige-colored hairstreak near the east end of Diamond Lake. The closest hairstreak that I can come up with this type of color tones is Hedgerow Hairstreak.


Hairstreak species?
In trying to determine what the ID of this butterfly is, I've been doing some research into different hairstreaks and I have determined that this is a Hedgerow Hairstreak despite the slash in the lower rear wings.

Moved from ID Request.
