Pseudophilotes vicrama

BBB5819 [Pseudophilotes vicrama]

This butterfly was earlier known as Polyommatus vicrama. It is one of many similar species that are hard to tell one from the other. It flies fast and close to the ground, so taking a good picture of it is not always easy. Its wingspan varies from 20 to 25 mm. Males are blue on the upper part while females are brown.
