Square spotted Blue? - Euphilotes centralis

Square spotted Blue? - Euphilotes centralis
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Montrose County, Colorado, USA
June 13, 2009
Seen in early afternoon on rim of canyon. A little shredded.


yes a Square-spotted Blue
but in the recent literature (including that followed on BugGuide now), those from the Southern Rockies are separated as into a different species called Euphilotes centralis. Whether this is a real distinction is debatable.
