Holly Blue

Celastrina argiolus


My ID is temptative. Out of my guide book this is the species with most ressemblance to my spotting. If the species is different please let me know. Holly Blue has pale silver-blue wings spotted with pale ivory dots.


It is distributed at the level of subespecies, through several continents. The first generation feeds on holly (Ilex aquifolium) and the next on a wider variety of plants.
