Realized I never added better photos of this bird. This bird was studied by hummingbird researchers. It was caught, weighed, vocals recorded, visually examined, and tail feathers taken. I haven't heard that the genetics have come back, but given the shutdowns with COVID, I wonder if the genetics ever will come back. Nonetheless, this was their conclusion, and I hear they are in the process of publishing.

First record of this species in Arlington County since 1977. Adult female found under a log in an upland area dominated by mountain laurel, similar to the habitat I’ve found this species in elsewhere in northern Virginia. This was in a park that has been extensively surveyed, yet there aren’t even any historical records of this species from this park. Absolutely amazing to find this species somewhere it has gone undetected for all this time.

Callophrys gryneus nelsoni intergrades near Onyx Summit in the San Bernardinos with a Callophrys population that uses Juniper occidentalis. This segregate was formerly called 'barryi,' but it is treated by Davenport (2018) as closest to Callophrys siva near chalcosiva. Warren and Pelham call this population 'Callophrys gryneus segregate using Juniperus.' The butterfly shown in this photo, photographed on the south side of Onyx Summit, may be part of this 'juniperus' segregate population.
