The Eros blue (Polyommatus eros) is a species limited to the European heights where can be even frequent. Often mistaken with various congeners, it displays a remarkable sexual dimorphism. The male shows a bright bluish colouring whilst the female is completely brown and opaque. The larvae live in symbiosis with some species of ants © Giuseppe Mazza
