Stugeta (Iolaus) bowkeri

Bowkers Marbles Saphire: A single sighting at Cumberland. It let me get up quite close. Taxonomically it went back  and forth from Iolaus to Stugeta. Originally Iolaus bowkeri Trimen 1864, it was revised by Druce 1891 using this butterfly as the type species to establish the genus Stugeta.
