Similar species. There is considerable confusion and disagreement over the Dotted Blue complex. Andy Warren (2005) considers populations in the Columbia and Snake River Basins of Oregon and Washington to be E. columbiae. Current field guides tend to describe it as E. entopes columbiae or simply refer to it as part of the Dotted Blue complex. Also compare to the Square Spotted Blue.

Comments. Associated with Northern Buckwheat (Ergonium compositum).
