Celastrina - Celastrina ladon

Celastrina - Celastrina ladon
Breeding, Adair County, Kentucky, USA
April 8, 1994
All the recent work that Tom and Tony did on Celastrina sent us back to our files to see if we had anything that might add to the Guide. Tom and Tony, we're posting these in ID request because we don't know if you'll find them useful additions to the guide pages you've been working on. Feel free to either move them to the guide or to frass!
Here's an early spring image from south central Kentucky.

Locality
and early date leads me to think it's Eastern Spring Azure Celastrina lucia of Authors, not Kirby.

 
Good News!
Today, 17 Feb 2006, Dr David Wright identified this speciemen as a true Celastrina ladon. A first for BG, thanks John & Jane.
