This was seen only once, in the Isparta region of Turkey in Spring. It was larger than I expected, and developing the butterfly image to suggest the correct hue of blue I found exceedingly difficult. There are several subspecies of anteros in Turkey, and I'm uncertain of which particular example I have encountered.
