There are many that look so similar in this family of butterflies! I hope some others comment because I am curious. The Common Blue is my guess, but I'm not 100%. Other similar butterflies include Plebejus argus and Plebejus idas.

Thanks a lot Christine! I got many today and they looked different so I thought they are subspecies so I left it to professionals to identify them correctly :)
