Good call. I am kicking myself as I have plenty of Ceraunus Blues in my collection. Sorry for the bad leads Luis.

Hi James A McNair, I have an ID now. What do you think?

The Marine Blue looks really close and also fits with range and territory

Thanks Sanjay Saklani. Looking at the range of the Miami Blue I don't think it might be the same one because this one is in the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

Thank you James A McNair for the ID and link. I think you are right.

I wish you could click some more pictures.As it has become critically endangered, and may be the rarest insect in the United States. Its numbers have recently been increased by a captive breeding program at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
