Boris, thanks for approving. Photo moved.

Boris, thanks! I put it as icarus, but now we have the first semiargus, well :)

Left one is Cyaniris semiargus, cause G. alexis hind wings underside is widely colored light blue from inside, no less that half of it, also its submarginal row of hindwing spots is differently positioned.

Lots of icarus and no semiargus at all. Let's wait for other suggestions...

Let's leave P. icarus and move if somebody approves C. semiargus. Ambiguous shot anyway. If you only saw how patient and insistent he was :)

If it's really semiargus, that's cool cause it has no pictures yet, I'd move to that.... Approvals/suggestions more?

Left is not Glaucopsyche alexis but Cyaniris semiargus (Rottemburg, 1775), but don't know this.

Wasn't sure what genus and species it was, sorry :)
