A query was made about records for the lycaenid, E. favonius.  We have a
series of specimens collected May 22, 1980 at Orange Beach, AL (Baldwin
Co.), about 250 yards from the Ocean.  This site with low dunes and
scattered oaks is now part of the Gulf State Park.  More extensive and less
disturbed habitat of similar type occurs at Bon Secour N.W. Refuge, west of
Ocean Springs.  Both the Park and Refuge require collecting permits.
