Description

This female butterfly is either a Lupine or Acmon Blue, but these two species are notoriously difficult to differentiate.

@euproserpinus Does it look like it is ovipositing to you?

Description from Wikipedia

Polyommatinae, the blues, are a subfamily of gossamer-winged butterflies (Lycaenidae). It was long used to assign taxa of unclear relationships, and its contents are in need of revision. Several genera might not even belong here.
