Funereal Duskywing (Erynnis funeralis)

Only one, well described but unconfirmed (no specimen/photograph) report for this species exists for NC. Normally found in the FL Keys and commonly in TX west to CA, some consider Funereal Duskywings to be the same species as Zarucco Duskywing. They do look very similar except Funereals have a bright white fringe.
