Flight of the Chocolate Butterfly

During the first week of August,  there were several of these 
dark brown butterflies flirting around in the yard, 
I've never seen them before and now their gone.

A small butterfly, wing-span about one inch, my attempt to identify 
them leads me to the Brown Elfin, (Callophrys augustinus), 
a member of the Gossaamer-wing Butterflies, 
Family Lycaenidae.(?)
