Amazing how blue they look as they fly, but upon landing the outside of the wings are a dull grey.

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.

No range data available.
