Desert Babul Blue

Azanus ubaldus


"The undersides on both sexes are whitish with brown bands and spots, and with blackish lunules (crescent shaped markings) on the underside of the hind wings. Butterflies in the family Lycaenidae are characterised by banded antennae, indented eyes, a narrow face, and thread-like extensions on the hind wings." ~arkive

Not the best photo for ID, but if I'm correct, that's a first of this species for me to find!
