Polyommatus icarus

$79.99

The tiny Common Blue is the most widespread blue butterfly in Britain and Ireland and is found in a variety of grassy habitats. The brightly colored males are conspicuous but females are more secretive. The color of the upperwings of females varies from almost completely brown in southern England to predominantly blue in western Ireland and Scotland, but the color is variable within local populations with some striking examples. Unlike Adonis and Chalkhill Blues, the dark veins do not extend into white fringes of wing margins.
