Sounds like some "southern" influence showing up in your specimen...We do see that occasionally in both Striped and Banded Hairstreak in southern New England...and also Coral Hairstreak - and even Gray Hairstreak.

What I mean by that is that in the southeastern Coastal Plain and into Florida are more southern subspecies that have longer tails, are more brightly colored with larger VHW spots etc. Specimens resembling these sometimes occur in Mass., CT, RI etc.

7/4 - Today saw my first ever Striped Hairstreak on the Agastache in my garden.  Couldn't help but notice the additional tails and the blue spot capped significantly with orange and black and white.
