Juvenal's or Horace's duskywing?

[Kudos to JB for our first zabulon of 2018.

The duskywing pair makes a tough ID. The two dots on underside of hind-wing of Juvenal's are not visible in the photos, but Juvenal's are more numerous now, and the wings look worn. Horace's have just emerged (only two reports so far) and probably wouldn't look so worn so early. Still, duskywing, sp. seems the correct call. jc]
