Summer Azure

Celestrina neglecta


Once thought to be the second brood of the Boreal Spring Azure (C. lucia), the Summer Azure flies later in the year, is slightly larger, and has a paler upperside. The underside lacks the extensive black-brown markings of lucia, and is paler overall. Subspecies argentata occurs in southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and our populations may belong to this taxon as well.


likely near prairie and parkland shrub thickets.
