Dark Cerulean

Dark Cerulean (Jamides bochus, 雅灰蝶).

With the cooler weather and abundance of flowers over the past few weeks, it would be unexpected if there were not many new insects emerging each new day. Among the different species of lycaenids (and it is great fun learning to tell them apart) around Changsha, I have been seeing steady numbers of dark ceruleans.
