Other Common Names
Small Oak Blue

I've only had one definite sighting of this species, which was in the park across the road from the Cairns Botanic Garden in April 2011. I saw it fly into a tree, where it settled a few feet above head height. I got a couple of shots, and then he flew down into the undergrowth near the tree, where I got a couple more shots of him only a few inches from the ground. It was quite a treat to see this species; I wish it was more common as I'd love to see it more often.
