Hesperiidae, I am 100% sure it is a Erynnis sp. and 50% confident with Erynnis horatius and 50% Erynnis juvenalis. The final decision is for US lepi folks to confirm. If anybody have the definitive ID, please, make some notes about the criteria. After suggesting my ID I just noticed the tricky separation between Horatius and Juvenalis!!
