Polyommatus escheri, Lycaenidae, Escher's blue

Due to the bright blue of males and the opaque brown of females the Escher’s blue (Polyommatus escheri) is often confused with congeneric species. On verso, it shows a bluish halo on the body and at the base of wings. It flies in flowered and sunny hilly meadows. It is present in south-western Europe with isolated populations, never numerous © Giuseppe Mazza
