Think this is the closest looking one to a Hickory.

Taken in a field of clover and wildflowers beside a mature dec forest with lots of oak, maples, hickorys and such. I was hoping for some Hickory Hairstreaks but the more I look at these photos the more I think all I have are Bandeds. (I did have a number of Stripeds that day too but they are easy to ID.)

Got'a go Hickory with this one.
Moved from Butterflies.

Hickory Hairstreak?

I agree they are probably all Bandeds. A good place to compare the two is at the Massachusetts site.


Thanks FMS, confirmation appr
