Spring Azure - Celastrina ladon

Spring Azure - Celastrina ladon
East Norwich/Chelsea Center, Nassau County, New York, USA
April 27, 2016
Form violacea. I placed this under plain old Spring Azure due to a current lack of NYS photos of Lucia Azure in BG and from a 2014 Harry P. comment on a C. lucia submission from Rhode Island. However, there is some thinking here on Long Island and the NYC metro area in general that both ladon and lucia occur here and lucia even in from violacea.
