Duskywings Butterfly in the Southern States – Critter 23

Tuesday, November 22, 2022

Interestingly, there are contradict reports about the presents of Duskywings butterfly in Canada. One report said no recorded of Duskywings in Canada.

I believe with reported from USGS (1999: Butterfly of North America), Duskywing was detected in the provinces of Manitoba and Ontario, Canada


However, yes, we may see this butterfly flies around from Northern to Southern states of the USA.


As reported by Mass Audubon (2022: Butterfly Atlas Species Accounts) that limit of duskywings distribution is “in extreme southern New Hampshire.”


I observed a quite number of duskywings during summer seasons when I visit gardens and parks in my city, Louisiana.

They are abundant in the areas of Gulf of Mexico, parts of Louisiana and Mississippi states.


Duskiwings fly and have habitats in other southern states as well, include the states of:

- Texas

- Alabama

- Georgia

- and Florida


Erynnis sp is known duskywings genus. This genus has at least 17 species in the USA.


Do you know about duskywings butterfly? Do you see in your areas?
