Lycaenid (Cephenes Blue)

Pseudodipsas cephenus


A small lycaenid with grub type larva and brown pupa


Hiding under succulent leaves. They feed nocturnally and can be seen by the 'chews' from last night partying.


The pupa is of a different species of Pseudidipsas but you wouldn't know because they are very similar. These specimens are collected by Cleve Herd whose wealth of information makes me appear knowledgeable.
