Sleepy Dusky Wing - Erynnis brizo - male

Sleepy Dusky Wing - Erynnis brizo - Male
Dead River, Marquette, Marquette County, Michigan, USA
May 28, 2009
Found flying around sandy creek side. I can't really tell between Juvenal's and Sleepy maybe it's neither?

ID
Since there are no hyaline spots, (the see through spots that are mainly on the forewing tips), it must be either Erynnis icelus or Erynnis brizo, I looks more like Erynnis brizo to me.
