Mazarine Blue(female)

Cyaniris semiargus

Description:

This is the female specimen of the previous spotting I submitted http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/315..., It was less active and stood on the same leaf also after I approached it. I think it to be of the same species as the other because they were on nearby leaves and flew together at moments.

Habitat:

grassy plains at 1100 mt. above sea level

Hi Adriano! In Polyommatus sp. the butterflies with brown on the dorsal view are the females. The blue ones are the males. Also see my comment on your spotting of the female.

Thankyou debbie! I try my best to capture them in their beauty :)
