Recently split from the Carolina Satyr is this species, which flies only in S. Texas and northern Mexico. According to Cong & Grishin (2014), the Lower Rio Grande Valley population of Hermeuptychia should be treated as a separate species. They differ from Carolina Satyrs by 2.1% DNA Barcode as well as " by wing patterns, such as the size of eyespots and the shape of brown lines on hindwing."
