Plebeius argus   Silver-studded Blue

Plebius argus

I didn't even know I had this photo until I revisited a collection looking for good plant photos. This was taken on the Great Orme where there is a distinct sub-species of this butterfly but to confuse matters the usual sub species also flies there. The markings on this one suggest ssp argus and not ssp caernensis.
