At first I thought it was a Silvery Blue but the side markings look different, especially with the orange V. I'm wondering if it is a Cupido comyntas - Eastern Tailed-blue?

The northern location should preclude eastern.

Moved to Cupido amyntula.
Moved from ID Request.

With that small amount of orange, I'm going with Western Tailed-Blue.
