The Wild Indigo Duskywing has small pure white spots on the forewing, a light-colored region on the foreward postmedian forewing to the inside of the white spots and no white spots to the inside of this light-colored region. Horace's Duskywing females may have a similar light-colored region but their white spots are larger and they do have a white spot on the inside edge of the light-colored region.
