Spring Azure

Spring Azure Spring Azure (Celastrina ladon/neglecta)
The Azures consist of a complex of species which have not been studied sufficiently to distinguish them. The Azure in this photo is more heavily marked and has a darker margin than is typically seen. Some experts would give this Azure a different name to reflect the morphological difference, but there is currently no agreement even on that name.
