Amanda's Blue

(Agrodiaetus amandus)

 

Male 18/07/04 Spanish Pyrenees

Male 18/07/04 Spanish Pyrenees

What a smashing blue this is! It's quite a big one and the male sports some dark, wide marginal borders on the upperside forewing though I'm not sure these are obvious from all angles. The underside is characteristically sparing in the orange lunule department......there's just a few near the anal angle of the hindwing. I find that the post-discal row of black dots on the under hindwing lie fairly straight from the inner margin up to space 5. Gorgeous!!
