While leading a Texas Butterfly Festival field trip in Harlingen's Hugh Ramsey Park yesterday (11/01/15), I photographed a hairstreak I tentatively identified as a Shadowed Hairstreak (Michaelus ira). It was visiting
Crucita blossoms on the Indigo Trail, and observed by all trip
participants. This is the first record of this species for the US. ID has been confirmed by Andy Warren of the McGuire Center.
