Thanks, Mark, but it took me quite a long time for this one, to be sure enough to make the lucky punch...

Fantastic ID work bayucca. I'm so impressed you didn't wait for a Cryptozealous impossibilius to lay your 7000th on.... just a lovely little grass blue. :-)

Lucky Lady Viv!
You got the lucky punch of my ID #7000!
It is most probably not the subspecies Lampa as indicated in some links. This should be from Singapore and Indonesia. I guess it is Zizina otis sangra:
