The common blue butterfly (Polyommatus Icarus) is found throughout the Palearctic. These stunning butterflies are part of the Lycaenidae and Polyommatinae family. The beautiful blue on this butterfly is truly unique.
The difference between the male and female is that common blue males usually have blue wings above with a black-brown border and white fringe. At the same time, common blue females are usually brown above with a blue dusting and orange spots.
The common blue butterfly’s wingspan is 28-36 millimetres (1.1-1.4). You can usually find these wonderful butterflies near flowery or grassy places or open wooded areas. As a caterpillar, they eat leaves, but they feed on wildflower nectar and excrement as an adult butterfly.
