Edwards's Hairstreak (Satyrium edwardsii)
Edwards's Hairstreak is rare and local in North Carolina. Though it has been recorded in a few locations in the Mountains and Piedmont, it is most common, but still very local, in the Sandhills, where it flies in June. The caterpillar host plants are scrubby oaks, such as Turkey Oak (Quercus laevis).
