Pseudonacaduba sichela

Pseudonacaduba sichela sichela, what a mouth full for the Dusky Blue. I found this butterfly mud-puddling at the side of our swimming pool on a cold September evening. It is my only record, possibly because we are at the edge of its distribution, and where its putative foodplant (mundulia spp.) is uncommon.
The genus comprises only two species.
