Satyrium calanus - Banded Hairstreak

Canton MA

These two Satyrium calanus were collected from scrub oak in the Blue Hills region on May 24th 2009. These are full grown caterpillars that were each being lightly tended by ants when I discovered them. One ant can be seen in the photograph looking after the darker brown individual.
