The underside is #13781 photo, haven't got it spread yet, still being dried.

Olga! The spread underside photo needed. It's male, by the way. Better to have it prepared. Might appear to be something new.

Seems to be male, considering descriptions, couldn't find upperside photos though. As for butterfly—ant symbiosis, might be in this case since I found it with a group of ants which I took away. Yesterday I spread it, such an amazing form, I'll upload it as it gets dried completely. Suspect though it might lose its blue color for it's gradually getting more purple.
