Mating Sleepy Duskywings - Erynnis brizo - male - female

Mating Sleepy Duskywings - Erynnis brizo - Male Female
Paris Mountain State Park, Greenville County, South Carolina, USA
March 30, 2006
I saw several of these skippers along a dry trail just above 1700 ft. From browsing Peterson's Butterflies and BugGuide, I'm thinking they are either Sleepy or Dreamy Duskywings. I know that SC is on the southern end of the Dreamy range, but Greenville County is in the northwest of the state and the park had some altitude.

Update - we're going with the Sleepy Duskywing

Thanks
Thanks guys, I'll go with Sleepy.

Dusky wing
I'm in for Sleepy as well. The basal 1/3 of FW is not blackened and the gray patch is not as large as for a dreamy.

If you are tallying votes
put me down for Sleepy
