Description

A small butterfly with fawn coloured wings with iridescent blue tones near the wing bases. The wings which looked fragile could have had a span of about 15 mm.
Spotted flying close to the ground over open grass land. Also present were other blues like Zizina labradus.

( I believe this is Zizula hylax. Could someone confirm please. Thanks)

  1. David Francis  Yes, it could be Z. hylax but I'd like to see the underside to be sure.
