Dark Cerulean
Jamides bochus



I first noticed this butterfly in Mysore. It flew up from taking minerals and flashed a distinctly brilliant, but very deep, shade of blue that I had not seen on any other Indian blues. It was rich and deep, like an Adonis blue, but darker. That butterfly never settled within reach but later, also in Mysore, I was able to get a photograph of the underside.
